Västerås Sinfonietta Orchestra in Focus, Västerås Konserthus, Västerås, Sweden - 26/10/17 @ 19:00


​Kopparbergsvägen 1, 721 09 Västerås, Sweden​

Finally, we meet Simon Crawford-Phillips in the role of the Sinfonietta's new chief conductor, known in the house after guest visits as both conductor and pianist. He is keen to create rich varied programmes as you will see from today's concert. Between classical acquaintances such as Beethoven's deserted Coriolanus wilderness and Schuberts featherish third symphony, we hear a rarity as the outrage of one of Hayden's many operas that rarely plays. It is music in the fierce Sturm und Drang style.  Simon is also a piano soloist in the fascinating Introitus of Russian Gubaidulina, one of the most internationally famous composers today, and a blistering quintet of Sinfonietta is shown in Ligeti's crazy entertaining five Bagatelles.

Ludwig van Beethoven: Coriolan Overture
Sofia Gubaidulina: Introitus
Joseph Haydn: The Deserted Island
Igor Stravinsky: Fanfare for a New Theater
György Ligeti: Bagatelles for wind quinet
Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 3
