A suite arranged for orchestra showcases the best of an original, hopefully leaving the audience wishing for more!

No time for this here, however, as the MSO’s summer treat for 2019 is a whirlwind “pick’n’mix” with Suppé’s popular Light Cavalry Overture there at the top as you open the packet of goodies! There follows the Spanish bravado, gypsy lilts, tragic drama and, above all, immortal melodies of Bizet’s opera Carmen all captured in 6 short movements, in its turn followed by Grieg’s equally immortal incidental music for Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, whose eponymous hero (and the composer’s fictional compatriot) travels around the world ending up in The Hall of the Mountain King in their mutual native Norway. This then leads to all the best numbers from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Musical Oklahoma!, including Beautiful Morning, Farmer and the Cowboy and of course Oklahoma! theme, all skilfully woven together by Robert Russell Bennett, to close proceedings. Well, not quite. The orchestra, in customary style, will invite the audience at the end to join in with Jerusalem!

Spotlights on the way are on the orchestra’s wind and string sections respectively playing Gounod’s joyous Petite Symphonie and Holst’s ever popular English folk-inspired St. Paul’s Suite.
