Our Next Concert
 

 
Saturday 18th June 2016
The Queen's Hall, Edinburgh, 7.45 pm

Bartók Divertimento for String Orchestra
Liszt Piano Concerto No 1 in Eb
Dvořák Romance in F minor, Op 11
Dvořák Czech Suite, Op 39

Conductor Peter Evans
Piano Richard Beauchamp
Violin Uli Evans


Our final concert of the season is a Hungarian/Czech programme whcih begins and ends with dance. Bartók's virtuoso masterpiece for string orchestra and Dvořák's wonderfully exuberant Czech Suite are both inspired by folk music. There is more virtuosity in Liszt's extraordinary cyclic first piano concerto and utterly beautiful lyricism in Dvořák's F minor Romance. The soloists in the latter pieces are distinguished Edinburgh musicians and residents: New Zealand pianist Richard Beauchamp and German violinist Uli Evans.
