Holst St Paul’s Suite
Haydn Symphony No.59
Grieg Two Elegiac Melodies
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.2 in B flat
You know spring is on its way when the European Union Chamber Orchestra comes to Warwick. It’s small in size, but don’t be misled – this is a group with a big personality. The EUCO draws its members from Europe’s finest young professional musicians, and the result is a chamber orchestra that plays with the panache of a virtuoso, the enthusiasm of a youth orchestra, and the finesse of a top string quartet.
Tonight, true to their Europe-wide mission, these outstanding players bring their special freshness to a programme that spans the continent. Holst’s delightful St Paul’s Suite is a long way from the radiant Nordic light of Grieg’s Elegiac Pieces, and even further from the blazing invention of Haydn’s Fire symphony. But they’re all just as inspired – as is Beethoven’s brilliant Second Piano Concerto.
Experience meets youthful energy, as the EUCO teams up with a true legend amongst Beethoven interpreters – the incomparable John Lill.
