The first university concert of the academic year provides solo spotlights for talented student musicians. Fourth-year medical student Laura Elliott is the soloist performing Haydn's C major Cello Concerto. Estonian composer Arvo Pärt's Tabula rasa for two solo violins, prepared piano and chamber orchestra is one of his earliest works in the 'tintinnabuli' style in which simple triads emulate the sound of bells. Stravinsky's charming and witty Danses concertantes ends the concert.
