Sibelius Ablaze - Master Series 8
Douglas Boyd - Conductor
Celia Craig - Oboe
Haydn - Symphony No.96 'The Miracle'
Judith Weir - Oboe Concerto (World Premiere)
Sibelius - Symphony No.5
The final chords of Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony ring out into the silence, and it’s like you’re gliding at 10,000 feet. The whole symphony is one almighty surge upwards, following the flock of swans that flew over Sibelius one day and inspired the magnificent horn theme of the last movement.
Three oboe players converge: Douglas Boyd conducts as Celia Craig (ASO’s Principal Oboe) takes a new concerto on its maiden flight; it has been written especially for her by Judith Weir, whose music is much admired for its clarity and lightness. The sense of lift begins with Haydn’s Symphony No.96, the first one he wrote for his enthusiastic London fans. A bright, effervescent work with trumpets, timpani…and another oboe solo!
Free for ticket holders, held one hour prior to the performance in the Adelaide Town Hall. Join Simon Lord, Director of Artistic Planning, Celia Craig, Principle Oboe of the ASO, and composer Judith Weir as they discuss the world premiere of her Oboe Concerto.
