Carl Nielsen - Helios Overture Bedřich Smetana - Ma Vlast: Vltava Bedřich Smetana - Ma Vlast: From Bohemia's Meadows and Forests Antonín Dvořák - Symphony No. 8 The concert will finish at approximately 9.15pm In this exciting nature-themed programme, Sinfonia opens with Neilson’s Helios Overture – a triumphant depiction of the rising and setting of the sun. From this, two dramatic movements from Smetana’s Ma Vlast – Vltava and From Bohemia’s Meadows and Forests – will take the audience to a jubilant conclusion of the first half. The second half will be dedicated to Dvorak’s powerful Symphony No. 8 – written to celebrate the spirit of Bohemia. This inspiring programme promises a rousing and enjoyable performance.
