City of Southampton Orchestra invite you to join them for an evening of well-loved classical music.

Smetana's Wallenstein's Camp may not be his most well-known piece, but it's not for lack of good tunes! This overture makes a great concert opener as it features the whole orchestra telling the story of General Wallenstein. The bugle calls and military march section contrast wonderfully with a radiant slower section in the middle.

Next we welcome French Horn soloist Andrew Littlemore to perform Richard Strauss's Horn concerto no. 2. Andrew is currently principal horn of the Birmingham Royal Ballet and also performs regularly with the Philharmonia and London Philharmonic Orchestra. He was also previously co-principal horn at Opera North.

In the second half we present Dvořák's Symphony no. 6. One of the first of his works to draw international attention, it has memorable melodies in the strings and woodwind. The slow movement is particularly radiant with elegant writing. The grand finale in D major makes a bold statement and is the perfect way to end our concert.
