For our opening concert of the season we are delighted to welcome back pianist Maya Irgalina, who will be performing Chopin's Piano Concerton No. Written when Chopin was only 20 it was premiered to 'thunderous applause' and reviewed, "There is spirit in these melodies, there is fantasy in these passages, and everywhere there is originality."

We open with one of Benjamin Britten's best known compositions. Commissioned in 1945 for an educational film, Instruments of the Orchestra, the work is a set of variations on a theme by Purcell. Each one features a different section of the orchestra, concluding with a magnificent fugue.

9 May 2020

We are absolutely delighted to welcome stunning horn virtuoso, Ben Goldscheider, for a welcome return to Scarborough. He will be performing Reinhold Gliere's glorious Horn Concerto. Despite being composed in 1950, the concerto harks back to the Romantic period with its beautiful melodies and gorgeous harmonies.

11 July 2020

Our final concert opens with a work little known in this country - Mosolov's The Iron Foundry. Written in 1926/7, it became his most famous composition. Moso!ov uses the orchestra to create ma­chine-like sounds by using short overlapping phrases, vividly imi­tating the workings of a factory.
