Mendelssohn | Strauss | Smyth


Join Oxford’s premier chamber orchestra for an evening to remember. We start with the mercurial tunefulness of Mendelssohn's overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream, and will then be joined by Carson Becke for the virtuosic fireworks of Richard Strauss’ Burleske for piano and orchestra. The final piece is Dame Ethel Smyth's Serenade in D, a memorably melodic early work by this first-rate composer, whose links with the suffragette movement we mark in this centenary year.

Duration: 1 hour 45mins with interval
