Our second concert for this year starts with farce: the overture to Johann Strauss’ Die Fledermaus (the Bat) is a brilliant favourite with audiences everywhere.
Weber’s Clarinet Concertino is a lovely example of Weber’s virtuosic but soulful clarinet writing and will be performed by our own Gigie Tam.
Darker in mood than the eighth and ninth, Dvorák’s seventh symphony i
s full of drama and Dvorák’s wonderful melodies, and the favourite of many Dvorák lovers. Dvorák found his inspiration in the unification of the Czech people.
We welcome David Gao as guest conductor for the first part of the concert. Our Music Director Sadaharu Muramatsu will conduct the Dvorák.
