Cristina Gómez Godoy: Oboé
Matthias Pintscher: Conductor
Schumann’s elegant and dynamic ‘Spring’ Symphony races along with a headstrong confidence as it gambols eagerly towards a world of warmth and light. There are touches of wistful melancholy along the way but it will send you out energised and with the broadest of smiles. Our former Artist-in-Association, Matthias Pintscher, returns to conduct and to champion Alexander Zemlinsky. A major musical figure in his day (he taught Schoenberg and Korngold), his Sinfonietta is just like a Mahler symphony in miniature, a late-Romantic work from Old Vienna that glitters like a Klimt painting. And in between, light as soufflé and just as pleasurable, Richard Strauss’s Oboe Concerto which yearns for another era. In the hands of the outstanding Cristina Gómez Godoy, its Mozartian finesse is bound to charm your socks off.
