The Northern Chamber Orchestra’s second concert of the season features remarkable young clarinetist Julian Bliss, acclaimed by critics worldwide, who appears here in a virtuosic mini-masterpiece, Weber’s second Clarinet Concerto. The programme opens with a work by the British composer Malcolm Arnold, his Sinfonietta No 1, an ebullient piece with an abundance of attractive thematic material with a notably jubilant conclusion.

After the interval is Suk’s Meditation, a politically charged work designed to ignite Czech Nationalist sentiments, written at the outbreak of WWI. The concert closes with a work also written at a time of war and revolutionary fervour. The symphony was premiered in London in 1795 during which a chandelier crashed to the floor narrowly missing audience members.
