Julian Bliss, clarinet, with Northern Chamber Orchestra

ARNOLD Sinfonietta No. 1, Op. 48
WEBER Clarinet Concerto No. 2 in Eb major, Op. 74
SUK Meditation on the old Czech chorale 'Good King Wenceslas', Op. 35a
HAYDN Symphony No. 102 in Bb major, Hob I/102

Remarkable young clarinetist Julian Bliss, acclaimed by critics worldwide, appears here in a virtuosic mini-masterpiece, Weber’s second Clarinet Concerto. The programme opens with a work by the British composer Malcolm Arnold, his Sinfonietta No 1, an ebullient piece with an abundance of attractive thematic material with a notably jubilant conclusion.

After the interval is Suk’s Meditation, a politically charged work designed to ignite Czech Nationalist sentiments, written at the outbreak of WWI. The concert closes with a work also written at a time of war and revolutionary fervour. The symphony was premiered in London in 1795 during which a chandelier crashed to the floor narrowly missing audience members.
