Mendelssohn – Overture and Wedding March from A Midsummer Night’s Dream Rutter – When Icicles Hang
Bernstein – Overture to West Side Story
Walton – Suite from the film music to Henry V
A concert to round off the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death. Mendelssohn’s incidental music sets the scene, followed by John Rutter’s vivid choral settings of Shakespeare, Campion and other texts from the fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. We then move to 1950s New York for Bernstein’s take on Romeo and Juliet and the concert ends with the suite from Walton’s extraordinary score for Laurence Olivier’s famous 1944 film of Henry V.
