2018 Gala Performance
On Sunday afternoon, 25 November 2018, The Rand Symphony Orchestra will proudly present their 2018 Gala Performance, conducted by Musical Director, Carel Henn. The afternoon’s performance will include three wonderful works, all written by composers in their prime.
The afternoon will open with Beethoven’s beautiful Overture to Fidelio. This overture is one of four written for an opera which took the composer 10 years to write, re-write and revise, beginning in 1804 with the first performance in 1805, when he was 35 years old.
Soloist Willem de Beer will thrill you with Tchaikovsky’s fabulous Piano concerto No. 1, completed in 1874, when the composer was 34.
The afternoon’s performance will conclude with an exciting selection from George Bizet’s wonderful Carmen Suites 1 & 2 – built on themes from the opera – completed in 1874,when he was 36.
