St Paul's Sinfonia - Friday 17th December at 7.30pm

St Paul's Sinfonia mark the end of 2010 with a first chance to hear the music of their Composer in Residence, Stuart Hancock. Plus Score for an Imaginary Film by young composer David Braid. The evening opens with one of the best-known Romantic overtures, and ends with Haydn's famous 'Farewell' Symphony. (Having not been granted a holiday for some time, Haydn brought the point home forcefully to his employer, Prince Esterhazy, by gradually whittling the orchestra down during the last movement of the work, until just two players are left on stage).
