Royal Welsh College Chamber Orchestra: Classical Revolution!

Haydn Symphony No.94 in G major Surprise

WA Mozart Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra, K191

Stravinsky Pulcinella Suite

Shostakovich Chamber Symphony in D major, Op 83a

David Jones conductor

Stanley Kaye-Smith bassoon

Not every revolution has to be violent. Stravinsky and Shostakovich took their inspiration from the 18th century – and reinvented classical music for a radical new age. The primary colours and razor-sharp wit of Pulcinella and  the Chamber Symphony are juxtaposed tonight by the genuine classical article, Mozart’s youthful Bassoon Concerto and Haydn’s Surprise Symphony – music that always sounds new.
