About

Royal Northern Sinfonia
Dinis Sousa conductor
Julian Bliss clarinet
Prokofiev Symphony No 1 'Classical'
Mozart Clarinet Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No 3 'Eroica'
With its sunny and cheerful character, dancing rondo finale and dreamy slow movement, you'd never guess that Mozart completed his Clarinet Concerto just weeks before his death. Written for his friend, the clarinettist and instrument inventor, Anton Stadler, it exploits the full range of the clarinet and has remained an enduring favourite. Julian Bliss is one of the world's finest and most versatile clarinettists, excelling as a concerto soloist, chamber musician and jazz artist – he dazzled with The Genius of Gershwin with his own Septet in the last Birmingham Classical season.
Prokofiev's witty 18 th -century inspired 'Classical' Symphony, updated to the early 20 th century, is the perfect concert opener, just as Beethoven's ground-breaking Third Symphony is a fitting conclusion. A work that changed musical history when Beethoven unleashed it on an unsuspecting Viennese public, it was an illustration of the capabilities and potential of a full and unfettered symphony orchestra.
From their home at Sage Gateshead, Royal Northern Sinfonia, and its recently-appointed Principal Conductor Dinis Sousa, has been flying the flag for the North East for over 60 years, collaborating with internationally-renowned artists and engaging with an ever-widening audience.
