MUMS Evening Concerts

Welcome Concert

5pm, Sunday 30th September 2018

Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall

Programme to include:
  • Poulenc - Gloria
  • Farrenc - Overture in E minor
  • Ibert - Flute Concerto

Join us for the first Music Society concert of the academic year, featuring three contrasting French works. We introduce our newest music students in Poulenc’s eclectic Gloria, followed by Louise Farrenc’s (1834) overture, transitioning classical and romantic idioms. Ibert’s flute concerto exhibits florid virtuosity, alongside Arturo Màrquez’s most popular work.

Price: £10.50 / £6.50 / £3

Symphony Orchestra

7.30pm, Saturday 20th October 2018

Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall

Programme to include:
  • Rachmaninoff - Isle of the Dead
  • Will Frampton - Special Commission
  • Copland - Symphony No. 3

Böcklin’s 1884 painting ‘The Isle of the Dead’ inspired Rachmaninoff’s extraordinary work, featuring one of the most sinister openings in any orchestral repertoire. Postgraduate composer, Will Frampton, explores a similarly dark sound-world, whilst Copland’s ‘American’ symphony brightens the second half.

Price: £10.50 / £6.50 / £3

Chamber Orchestra

7.30pm, Saturday 10th November 2018

Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall

Programme to include:
  • Mozart - Adagio and Fuge
  • Rautavarra - Piano Concerto No. 1

The year 1788 saw Mozart push the boundaries of contemporary composition to unseen heights of contrapuntal mastery and genius, emulated in his Adagio and Fugue and final symphony. Rautavarra’s Piano Concerto in-between is in turn meditative and eerily reflective.

Price: £10.50 / £6.50 / £3

Manchester University Wind Orchestra (MUWO)
