Mozart – Overture Die Zauberflöte
Sibelius – Symphony No 7 in C, Op 105
Copland – Appalachian Spring
Beethoven – Symphony No 8 in F, Op 93

Student conductors lead the University of Surrey Symphony Orchestra through these three masterpieces from the orchestral repertoire.

Sibelius’ final one-movement Symphony (the lush and powerful 7th) is complemented with the wit and humour of Beethoven’s more lighthearted and glittering 8th Symphony.

These two symphonies surround Copland’s glorious Appalachian Spring which is brimming with New World joy and hope. This raw and energetic piece married with Sibelius’ 7th and Beethoven’s 8th makes for the perfect evening programme as we move into the long summer months. Getting in the mood for summer, Pimms will also be availble as interval refreshments.
