THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 André de Ridder, conductor Nicholas Daniel, oboe Lucy Wakeford, harp BACH Brandenburg Concerto No.6 in B flat, BWV1051 HENZE Double Concerto for Oboe, Harp and Strings MENDELSSOHN String Symphony No.11 in F A rare opportunity to hear a performance of Hans Werner Henze’s Double Concerto for Oboe and Harp written in 1966 for the virtuoso soloists Heinz and Ursula Holliger. Mendelssohn’s performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion in 1829 brought about a revival of Bach’s music after an absence of almost 100 years. His interest in studying earlier models, most particularly contrapuntal writing, is evident in the 11th string symphony, completed in 1823. The concert finishes at approximately 9.20pm
