Opening with Holst's lively 'St Paul's Suite' – the first piece he wrote for his pupils at St Paul's Girls School - the centrepiece of this concert is Haydn's virtuosic Cello Concerto which displays
the full range of the instrument from growling low chords to lyrical melodies with Haydn's characteristic lightness of touch. The charm of Grieg's 'Two Melodies' is matched by the rhythmic vivacity of Mozart's Symphony No. 33.
