We look forward to welcoming back the South East London Orchestra for their next concert in St. Barnabas.
The programme is to include works by Nielsen – Helios Overture, Elgar – Enigma Variations and Dvorak – The Noon Witch.
Dvorak’s ‘The Noon Witch’ is rarely heard as often as perhaps it should be. A symphonic poem (lasting 13 minutes or so) written in 1896 for a performance at the Prague Conservatoire, its first full public performance was given in London under the baton of Henry Wood. The oboe and bass clarinet depict the characters of a misbehaving child and witch, respectively. Find the full story revealed in this concert!
