RCM Symphony Orchestra

Judith Weir Heroic strokes of the bow
Anian Wiedner Sesquialtera (world premiere)*
Shostakovich Symphony no 11 in G minor op 103

Prince Consort Professor of Conducting Martyn Brabbins leads the RCM Symphony Orchestra in a concert of contrasting and vivid works.

Master of the Queen's Music Judith Weir was inspired by a painting of violin bows and pegs by Paul Klee for her energetic piece Heroic strokes of the bow. The orchestra follows this with the world premiere of Sesquialtera. Written by RCM Concerto Competition winner Anian Wiedner, this symphonic work has a prominent role for the organ; its title, Sesquialtera, derives from the name of a 'mixture' organ stop.

To conclude, hear Shostakovich's cinematic Eleventh Symphony, a piece evoking the tragedy of the 1905 revolution. The intense music is considered a poignant reflection on history, depicting the anguish and cries of the impoverished people.
