Meet the musicians of the North East’s professional orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia, in four pieces of music that show off just what you can do with small groups of wind and string instruments. They’re playing two household names, Sergei Prokofiev and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and two composers you probably don’t know – Reinhold Glière and Grażyna Bacewicz.
The longest and most intense piece in the concert is Mozart’s. Mozart is known for being tuneful, pretty, and sometimes just very ‘nice’ but in this music he shows his dark side (we’ve all got one) – sinister, tragic, even a bit violent, with clashing, stabbing notes. 
In total contrast, Prokofiev’s music is based on life in the circus – playful and experimental. Folky tunes feature in Bacewicz’s music and our opener is pacy, elegant and dead classy. 
  • Reinhold Gliere String Octet in D Major
  • Sergei Prokofiev Quintet in G Minor
  • Grazyna Bacewicz Quartet for Four Violins
  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart String Quintet in G Minor
