The Festival Academy Orchestra
Thomas Hull conductor
Steven Osborne piano
Should the need arise for the orchestra to observe social distancing, this would mean a much reduced ensemble which would necessitate a complete change of repertoire. If we have to go down this route we will inform you of the amended programme.
Piano concerto No.3 in D minor Op.30
Symphony No.5 in F major Op.76
We are hugely indebted to the Academy Orchestra for their decision to commit to performing, in each of their three concerts, a full length programme twice in one day. It is a marathon undertaking. As always, they will be under the baton of their inspirational conductor Thomas Hull with the highly experienced orchestral leader Ruth Rogers.
The three concerts they give every festival are the culmination of months of preparation. For the first concert we welcome back festival regular Steven Osborne as soloist in one of the most popular and challenging concertos in the entire repertoire, and the concert closes with the first of Dvorak’s symphonies to be acknowledged as one of his orchestral masterpieces.
