Chester Philharmonic Orchestra - April Concert
Saturday 25 April 2020
Chester Cathedral
Concert for St George's Day
Brahms Tragic Overture
Bartok Viola Concerto
Elgar Symphony No 1

One cannot discuss Brahms’ Tragic Overture without mentioning his Academic Festival Overture. Both were written at the same time and their first performances within days of each other with the Tragic Overture being performed at the same concert as the Academic Overture. This caused quite a stir because the Tragic is very solemn whilst the Academic is light hearted. The Tragic Overture is non programmatic and does not represent any specific tragedy. It has been postulated that Brahms wanted to compose an overture to Goethe’s Faust, but Brahms himself wrote to a friend , “I could not refuse my melancholy nature the satisfaction of composing an overture to a tragedy”.

Bartok’s Viola Concerto wasn’t actually composed in its present form by Bartok. He died leaving a pile of manuscripts and sketches on unnumbered pages which his friend Tibor Serly arranged into order and then orchestrated to parts. This evening, the concerto will be performed by Duncan Anderson a young man who is a physics and music graduate and is well known to the orchestra. He first performed with us in 2009 and his parents have been members of the Chester Philharmonic for many years with his father Robert often leading and his mother Diana a member of the woodwind section.

Elgar completed only two symphonies both composed when he was over 50. Initially he thought of composing a symphony to commemorate General Gordon but eventually decided that as abstract music was the pinnacle of musical achievement, it should be non programmatic . The first rehearsal for its first performance at the Free Trade Hall Manchester in 1908 produced this comment from Hans Richter its conductor to the orchestra, “Gentlemen, let us now rehearse the greatest symphony of modern times, written by the greatest modern composer – and not only in this country.”

Conductor - Stephen Threlfall
