Johanna Malangré Conductor
Orchestre de Picardie
The ONL is delighted to welcome the Orchestre de Picardie and its new Music Director, Johanna Malangré, for this ambitious programme. For many, it is a chance to discover the Concerto for string orchestra, a mid-20th century work by the renowned Polish violinist and composer, Grażyna Bacewicz. Milhaud’s Jeux de Printemps, a six-part divertissement, dates to the same period and is described effectively by the titles to each movement: Alerte, Gai, Tranquille, Robuste, Nonchalant and Joyeux. Mozart had just turned 18 when he composed his Symphony No.29, a joyful work which breaks with the galant style that typified other symphonic works at the time. A wonderful evening to look forward to!
The ONL welcomes the Orchestre de Picardie for a performance in its concert season.
