Przemyslav Winnicki 2.jpg

We open our 2023/24 season with Andrzej Panufnik’s reflections on his homeland, Polonia. Based on folk melodies and vigorous, full-blooded rhythms of Polish folk dances, Panufnik conjures up a work of overtly joyous character. The Suite is finished by a wild dance, which was sometimes drunkenly and joyously executed at four or five in the morning!

We are delighted to introduce the international competition-winning concert pianist, Przemyslav Winnicki to perform Mozart’s most famous piano concerto, No.20 in D minor. Famously featured in the film Amadeus, this performance promises to be one not to be missed.

We close our concert with Saint-Saëns’s magnificent Symphony No.3, nicknamed the Organ Symphony - a hugely popular work for audience and musicians alike. Our organ soloist, Anthony Cross, is a member of the SSO brass section and we are proud to have such a versatile musician amongst us.
