Musical Tales From Childhood


Ravel Mother Goose: Suite
Strauss Duet-Concertino
L. Mozart Toy Symphony
Humperdinck Hansel and Gretel: Suite

Nicholas Carter conductor
David Thomas clarinet
Jack Schiller bassoon
Woodwind soloists of the MSO

This enchanting program of music for the young and the young at heart opens with Ravel’s impressionistic evocation of such stories as Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty in his Mother Goose suite, and concludes with music from the widely loved operatic version of Hansel and Gretel, including the evening prayer. And don’t miss the fun of Leopold Mozart’s Toy Symphony – which really does include toys!

The concert will be preceded by a free organ recital at 6.30pm, performed by Doctor Calvin Bowman on the Town Hall organ.
