Concluding her time as Artist-in-Residence, Jennifer Johnston brings us the hauntingly beautiful Il Tramonto (The Sunset) based on words by Shelley. Respighi’s music depicts a young love cut off in its prime, an operatic drama in miniature.

Carmen is one of opera’s most vibrant characters and in this version of the music, arranged by Shchedrin, the percussion team of the Orchestra have all the fun. Ginastera gives the rest of the orchestra a virtuosic workout to start.
