Sinfonia returns with an exciting programme for its first concert. Opening with Dvořak’s dark tone poem The Wild Dove; the mood lightens as Vaughan-Williams’ much loved masterpiece Fantasia for strings, based on a plainchant melody by Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis, follows. The expanded orchestral forces re-join for Beethoven’s Creatures of Prometheus Overture before concluding with Sibelius’ majestic Second Symphony [“symphony of a liberation”] which expressed the Finnish national struggle against Russian oppression.
