CCMS present an intriguing programme centering on the trope of the 'tragic', a common programmatic influence for composers of the long 19th Century. Brahms' magnificent Tragic Overture opens the concert, presenting a certain turbulence contrasted with Wagner's lyrical symphonic poem, Siegfried Idyll. Fanny Hensel's C Major overture opens an earlier Romantic second half, with the 'tragic' trope revisited through Schubert's minor key 4th symphony. Four different talented student conductors lead the orchestra throughout the evening.
