The sections of the orchestra get to shine in the Liverpool Mozart Orchestra’s (LMO) final concert of its season starting with the wind section in Richard Strauss’s early Suite for 13 Wind. Written for double wind plus four horns and a contrabassoon it is quite the line up and Strauss makes full use of all the players.
For the rest of the concert the LMO welcomes back Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Leader Thelma Handy to direct the orchestra from the violin, starting with Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante, for which she will be joined by fellow Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Principal Nick Bootiman on the viola. Then to finish Thelma will move to the Leader’s chair and direct the strings of the LMO in Tchaikovsky’s ever popular Serenade for Strings, a glorious way to end the concert and the season!
