Welsh National Opera Orchestra
Presented and Directed from the Violin by David Adams
Horn Soloist: Angus West
We leave the conductor behind and the musicians and audience are brought together for the evening by David Adams, WNO’s Orchestra Leader and Concertmaster.
The concert includes one of the most famous works from Mozart, the Horn Concerto No 4. Surrounding this exciting offering, the Great Hall will resonate to the sounds of the most famous waltzes and polkas from glittering Vienna ballrooms.
Our opener, the fabulous overture to Der Freischutz by Weber, will get us off to a cracking start. Favourite waltzes such as Wine, Women and Song, The Blue Danube and Gold and Silver alongside the Tritsch-Tratsch, Thunder and Lightning and Champagne polkas and the great Radetsky March, will adorn the rip-roaring second half, alongside some of the less familiar fare.
This is all guaranteed to put a spring back into your post-Christmas step.
