A majestic musical landscape
Hector BERLIOZ Béatrice et Bénédict: Overture
Carl Maria von WEBER Clarinet Concerto No.1
Felix MENDELSSOHN Symphony No.3 Scottish
Umberto Clerici conductor
Ashley Smith clarinet
Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony is a brooding work of orchestral colour, inspired by the ruins of Holyrood Chapel and the misty magnificence of the rolling Scottish landscape.
Opening with the exuberant overture to Berlioz’s comic opera, we then unleash Perth’s own ‘Rock Star of the Clarinet’ Ashley Smith in Weber’s ever-popular concerto. Making his WASO debut, former Sydney Symphony Orchestra Principal Cellist Umberto Clerici has established himself as a fast-rising star of the conducting world.
This concert is presented in accordance with the Western Australian Government’s easing of COVID-19 capacity restrictions. As a result, you may be seated with ticket holders from other households. Please continue to practise good hygiene habits and observe physical distancing where possible.
We will do everything in our power to present the program listed but, as we all know, we may have to vary the repertoire or artists should Government guidelines or travel restrictions change. If that happens, we will let you know.
