Dazzling virtuosity and elegant dance: dynamic Portuguese conductor Joana Carneiro brings together music to delight, entertain and amuse in this captivating concert.
The SCO’s Principal Flute André Cebrián demonstrates his renowned skills as a soloist in Mozart’s youthful Flute Concerto in D – music created to showcase its player’s wit and panache.
Mozart and Stravinsky both bring refinement and sophistication to their dance music, created centuries apart – Mozart in the majestic spectacle of his ballet music and Stravinsky with all the glamour of Hollywood in the 1940s.
Dancing snow, jiving toys and dozing elephants are among the innocent delights in the six exquisite pieces of Debussy’s 'Children’s Corner'.
