RUSH HOUR #12: SPOTLIGHT
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

Weber Clarinet Concertino
Stephen Hough Bridgewater (world premiere)
Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No.1 

Simon Over conductor
Ross Montgomery clarinet
Andres Yauri bassoon
Carola Krebs cello

Southbank Sinfonia’s musicians are not only exceptional orchestral players, but charismatic soloists too. Here, three get their chance in the spotlight.

From dulcet to dazzling, Weber’s excitable Concertino changes in mood and colour with each new variation. A soloist himself, Stephen Hough also composes: here we present his newest jewel for bassoon and strings. Meanwhile the firebrand Saint-Saëns created a showcase for cello that vividly tests the very limits of the instrument’s capabilities.
