Sinfonia Tamesa

Sinfonia Tamesa, Tom Hammond, Johnny Roberts - Wagner, Strauss, Brahms, 20 july 2013
Sinfonia Tamesa is  going all late Romantic at its  concert tomorrow (20 July 2013). Conducted by their founder Tom Hammond, the orchestra will be joined by Johnny Roberts as the soloist in Richard Strauss's late masterpiece, the Oboe Concerto. The work was written in 1945 (when the composer was over 80) and arose after conversations between Strauss and John de Lancie, who was serving in the US Army but in civilian life had been the oboist of the Pittsburgh Orchestra. Sinfonia Tamesa are teaming the work up with the overture to Wagner's Die Meistersinger and Brahms's Second Symphony. The concert takes place at St John's Waterloo, further information from the Sinfonia Tamesa website.
