Robin Holloway, 75th Birthday Concert

Mozart Concerto for Two Pianos K.365
Schumann arr. Robin Holloway Six Canonic Studies op.56
Schumann Symphony No.3 ‘Rhenish’

In this concert, the Cambridge University Orchestra weaves its way from classic to classic by way of Holloway’s astute reinterpretation of Schumann’s studies for the unusual pedal-piano. We end the evening with Schumann’s great, final symphony, known as the “Rhenish”. From its dance-like melodies to its enchanting contrapuntal chorale to its heroic conclusion, the symphony is a masterful close to the evening from one of Holloway’s favourite composers.
