presented by National Capital Orchestra
To start our 2022 concert season the National Capital Orchestra, conducted by Louis Sharpe, will be joined by the extremely talented young Canberra cellist James Monro in the monumental Cello Concerto by Antonín Dvořák. Soaring melodies and numerous virtuosic passages on the solo cello are hallmarks of this memorable work.
After the interval the orchestra presents Festival Flourish by the Australian composer Dulcie Holland, followed by the incomparable Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber. The final work on the program is Les Préludes, a symphonic poem by Franz Liszt that is said by the composer to represent the beginnings of his own path of composition, starting with a quiet introduction and then moving to exploit the full forces of the orchestra.
