RUSH HOUR #15: IN THEIR HANDS
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

Kodály Dances of Galanta
Sibelius Symphony No.2

Natalia Luis-Bassa conductor

Every orchestra has its own personality, a collective sound and attitude shaped by its many varied members. In their final Rush Hour performance, our 2016 players have chosen the repertoire themselves – music that matches their group dynamic.

The concert opens in a flash of colour with Kodaly’s rhapsodic orchestral showpiece, Dances of Galanta. Its many playful and virtuosic cadenzas give a highly characterful portrait of each section in the orchestra. The orchestra then get to flex their muscles with Sibelius’ expansive Second Symphony. This mighty work gives the orchestra the chance to demonstrate their strength and depth of musicianship, bringing the last rush hour concert of 2016 to a powerful and emotional conclusion.

From rehearsals to publicity and stage management, the entire concert is in their hands! Click here to find out more about what they’ve been up to.
