Eine Kleine Nachtmusic
Flute Concerto in G Major
       Soloist: Emma Halnan
Antiche Danze et Arie per Liute – Suite No 3
Symphony no 45 (Farewell)

Mozart’s ever popular Eine Kleine Nachtmusik will open this programme leading to the evening’s highlight, a performance of the same composer’s delightful Flute Concerto in G major with soloist Emma Halnan.

The concert will end with a work renowned as a good example of successful industrial relations. In 1772 when Haydn’s players were restless about time spent away from their families at a summer palace some distance from home, Haydn composed this symphony to convey their disquiet to their aristocratic employer, in a most interesting manner…!

The woodwind category winner of BBC Young Musician in 2010, Emma Halnan has also appeared as concerto soloist and in 2016 she recorded and broadcast on Classic FM a piece specially composed for her by eminent composer Sir Karl Jenkins.

Making Music is the UK’s leading organisation for leisure-time music, with over 3,500 music groups in membership. The support of Emma Halnan’s appearance this evening is made possible by the Philip and Dorothy Green Music Trust which is administered by Making Music.
