THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 Jonathan Tilbrook, conductor Elisheba Stevens, cello MOZART Symphony No.1 in E flat, K16 HAYDN Cello Concerto in C PÄRT Summa POULENC Sinfonietta The University Philharmonia begins the year with a delightful programme of classical and neo-classical wit and elegance. Composed in London in 1764, when Mozart was all of eight years of age, the symphony K16 - which may not in fact have been his first, but still seems the most likely contender - reveals a precocious command of the form with music which combines vivacity and humour in the outer movements and a weighty seriousness and sense of drama in the central Andante. Third-year undergraduate music student, Elisheba Stevens, takes the solo role in Haydn’s cello concerto. The programme is completed with Arvo Pärt’s quietly contemplative Summa, (a version for strings of a vocal work with the same name which sets the ‘Credo’ text from the Mass) and Poulenc’s gloriously witty, urbane and light-hearted Sinfonietta - written for the BBC in 1947. The concert finishes at approximately 9.10pm
