Orpheus Sinfonia takes us to Paris

The Orpheus Sinfonia provides opportunity and support for young musicians just starting in the profession. Under the direction of Thomas Carroll, the orchestra is visiting Paris for the concert at St George's Church, Hanover Square on 24 April 2014. The programme includes music from visitors with Mozart's Paris Symphony, written there when the composer was 22, and Stravinsky's Petrushka which was premiered in Paris by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. Native composers include Saint Saens with his Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso 1863 (with Akiko Ono, violin) and Ravel's La Valse (written as a ballet for Diaghilev but rejected by him and premiered in concert form). Further information form the Orpheus Sinfonia website.
