Like each musician, every instrument in the orchestra has its own personality and stories to tell. Some are extrovert and excitable, rushing to share tales of action and adventure. Others are more laid back, preferring to keep you on the edge of your seat as they slowly let the tension build and build.
Here the spotlight is shone on a selection of them as we explore concertos, delving into some juicy musical conversations between the soloist and the supporting orchestra!
With 33 electrifying young players as your guides, you can also expect dramatic lighting effects and big screen projections that help to take you right inside the orchestra and the music being played. After the concert you can meet the musicians and try out some of their instruments in Cadogan Hall’s foyer.
Featuring a selection of movements from concertos performed by members of Southbank Sinfonia, including:
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto (1st movement)
Hummel Trumpet Concerto (3rd movement)
Arnold Clarinet Concerto No. 1 (3rd movement)
Haydn Cello Concerto No. 1 (3rd movement)
Ideal for children aged 5 – 11.
