Our resident Orchestra celebrating its 20th anniversary of being associated with the Festival presents a meaningful and varied programme, raising awareness of mental illness and music’s powerful influence on health and creativity. Ravel’s Tombeau and Copland’s Appalachian Spring, both amongst the most popular and well known of 20th century works, will give full rein to the expressive musicality and virtuosity of this orchestra of soloists, and the opportunity to hear Mendelssohn’s delicious Konzertstück No 2 for clarinet and basset horn is rare. As witness to the orchestras commitment to new works, principal bass James Manson’s Meeting at Nisquenia shares much with Copland’s own Shaker-inspired ballet, and Schumann’s Traümerei features the NCO’s Leader and Artistic Director as solo violinist.
