Hugo Mak bassoon
Jonathan Tilbrook conductor

Haydn Symphony No.83 in G minor (La poule)
Jolivet Concerto for bassoon, string orchestra, harp and piano
Ravel Ma Mère l'Oye (Mother Goose)

The first University concert of the academic year has a distinctly French flavour. Student Hugo Mak performs André Jolivet’s virtuosic and technically demanding bassoon concerto composed in 1954. This is framed by two works with a connection to birds: Haydn’s Symphony No.83 ‘La poule’ (The Hen) acquired its nickname in the 19th-century for the ‘clucking’ oboe accompaniment heard in the first movement. Ravel originally composed his whimsical collection of fairy tales ‘Mother Goose’ as a piano duet for two young children but in 1911 he orchestrated it and it is this version which is most often performed today.
