2021 Opening Concert

The Poet, Nature and the Dance
Featuring Howard Penny and the ANAM Orchestra

“This program is about Romanticism with a capital ‘R’. We hear the passions and fevered inspirations of the poet in Schumann’s rarely played Manfred overture, the warm sounds of Bohemian countryside and an array of dances of the Danube in Dvořák’s symphony, and Strauss with a Hungarian accent to bring things to a fizzing close. From the poet’s garret, to the village green, to champagne at the ball - it’s all here!”
