NIKITA NAUMOV PLAYS EÖTVÖS DOUBLE BASS CONCERTO

Friday 20 March 2020
7.30pm

BARTÓK Music for Strings, Percussion & Celesta (27’)
EÖTVÖS Double Bass Concerto ‘Aurora’ UK Premiere (c.20’)
HAYDN Symphony No 92 ‘Oxford’ (25’)
-
THOMAS ZEHETMAIR - Conductor
NIKITA NAUMOV - Double Bass  

The double bass steps into the spotlight so rarely that a brand new concerto by one of Europe’s most distinguished composers is big news. Eötvös’ piece comes to you hot on the heels of its Berlin premiere, and the soloist is the Orchestra’s own, Nikita Naumov. Expect classic Hungarian passion, brilliant colour and fiery drama: a combination you also find in Bartók’s celebratory opening work. To close, Zehetmair directs a festive treat – the symphony Haydn performed to thank the city of Oxford for its hospitality.

Composer Insights, 6.45pm: Robert McFall describes the influence of folk music in Hungarian music.
