Farrenc, Tchaikovsky, Brahms & Schumann open the Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra's 74th Concert Season

Louise Farrenc, the French composer and virtuoso pianist, left behind a small but important oeuvre of orchestral repertoire. Her first overture is an 18th century masterpiece, and a sparkling opening to the concert.

Charlotte Pinder joins us for Tchaikovsky’s devastatingly beautiful Sérénade mélancolique before we give the world premiere of an orchestral arrangement, by Musical Director George Morton, of Clara Schumann’s 4 Pieces Caractéristiques, originally written for solo piano. 2019 marks the 200th anniversary of Schumann’s birth and this evening we celebrate her innovation and seismic impact on classical music.

Johannes Brahms’, Clara’s close friend and confidant, Second Symphony rounds off the programme!
