Sinfonia da Camera commences the evening with Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture, with its lively themes serving to musically portray Maestro Ian Hobson’s English birthplace. As requested by patrons in the past season, Hobson will then take the stage as both conductor and pianist for Rachmaninoff’s instantly recognizable and virtuosic Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Following intermission, Sinfonia will conclude the program with the iconic and crowd-pleasing Symphony No. 5, a continuation of their multi-year Beethoven cycle.
Elgar: Cockaigne Overture
Rachmaninoff: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43
