Note: All concerts now commence at 7:30pm


Sunday 2nd February 2020 at 7:30pm (St Cuthbert's Church)
Smetana: Má vlast - The Moldau (Vltava)
Bartók: Concerto for Orchestra
Dvořák: Symphony No 6 in D major


Our first concert of the New Year has a central European theme - music from the Czech Republic and Hungary. Smetana's evocative depiction of the mighty river Vltava is undoubtedly the best loved of his cycle of six tone poems, while Dvořák's sixth symphony, although less well known than his "New World", is brimful of unforgettable melodies - one of his sunniest compositions. If the Dvořák symphony is undeservedly neglected, Bartók’s "Concerto for Orchestra" is certainly his most popular work. It is a passionate and exciting composition, his last major work, written in America and premiered in 1943. This Concerto for Orchestra presents exactly the sort of challenge upon which Sinfonia thrives. Come and hear us!



Saturday 8th February at 7:30pm (St Michael's Church, Linlithgow)
Smetana: Má vlast - The Moldau (Vltava)

  A Night in Vienna:
Mozart: Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Schubert: Symphony No 8 "Unfinished"
Mozart: Exsultate Jubilate
Johann Strauss: Arias from "Die Fledermaus"

soprano: Milly Forrest
Strauss family: Favourite Waltzes and Polkas

What better way to spend a warm [hopefully!] May evening, than to be whisked off to that city of music: Vienna, courtesy of Sinfonia’s magic carpet?! Up and coming soprano Milly Forrest joins us in well loved works by Mozart and Johann Strauss, while the orchestra aims to delight you with two of the most celebrated pieces in the entire Classical repertoire : Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Schubert’s Unfinished. After the interval we are featuring all [well, most of] your favourite Strauss Waltzes and Polkas. We guarantee that your toes will be tapping during the concert and your head full of melody afterwards!
