BARTÓK

Music for Strings, Percussion & Celesta (27’)

EÖTVÖS

Double Bass Concerto ‘Aurora’ UK Premiere (c.20’) (Co-commissioned by the Karajan-Akademie Berlin, Tongyeong Festival, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne and SCO)

HAYDN

Symphony No 92 ‘Oxford’ (25’)

THOMAS ZEHETMAIR - Conductor

NIKITA NAUMOV - Double Bass

The double bass steps into the spotlight so rarely that a new concerto by one of Europe’s most distinguished composers is big news. Eötvös’ piece comes to you hot on the heels of its Berlin premiere, and the soloist is the Orchestra’s own, Nikita Naumov.

Expect classic Hungarian passion, brilliant colour and fiery drama: a combination you also find in Bartók’s celebratory opening work. To close, Zehetmair directs a festive treat – the symphony Haydn performed to thank the city of Oxford for its hospitality.
