A suite of Baroque dances,
an unmistakably English ‘song’,
the most famous of all Spanish guitar music and a symphony
by a composer who died tragically young. What a concert programme!
and it will be played by Havant
Chamber Orchestra at Ferneham
Hall, Osborn Road, Fareham on Saturday 7 February
commencing at 7.30pm.
Needless to say, the guitar music is Rodrigo’s
Concierto de Aranjuez played by no less than Carlos Bonell,
a top world guitarist and whose recording of the Concierto
is rated one of the best.
The Suite - by the great Johann Sebastian
Bach - includes his famous ‘Air on the G string’; next is Delius’ fresh
and dance-like ‘Song before Sunrise’ and the
Symphony is by the Spanish composer, Arriaga, who only wrote
a symphony, several string quartets and a cantata - all of
tremendously high quality before he died aged just 19 in
