Mozart - Overture to The Magic Flute
Grieg - Piano Concerto
Nielsen - Symphony No. 1

The Mid-Somerset Orchestra is privileged to work with international piano soloist Sam Haywood for the fourth time following his memorable performances of concertos by Brahms, Beethoven and Rachmaninov. This time Sam will perform Grieg’s piano concerto. Written in 1868, the concerto is one of the most well-known in the repertoire and is an enduring feature in the Classic FM Hall of Fame. This will follow an exuberant opening to
the concert with the overture to Mozart’s final opera The Magic Flute.

In the second half of the concert we continue the Scandinavian theme, moving from a Norwegian to a Danish composer. Carl Nielsen completed the first of his six symphonies in 1892. It is a very accessible and melodic symphony with a distinctive Danish flavour, and deserves to be performed much more frequently.
