Norfolk Symphony Orchestra play with enthusiasm in return to King's Lynn
To mark their reappearance after a two year absence, due to Covid, the popular local Norfolk Symphony Orchestra, gave a popular concert of familiar favourites to a full and delighted audience at Lynn’s Corn Exchange recently.
Audience members welcomed and warmed to the programme, consisting of Elgar’s well known ‘Enigma Variations’, which includes the much loved ‘Nimrod’ variation, Mozart’s Horn Concerto No.4,in E flat, which ends with a famous Rondo finale, and Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, it’s initial famous four note war-time motto theme permeating the whole piece.
Martin Childs was soloist in the Mozart Concerto, including an arresting first movement cadenza, and conductor Steve Bingham encouraged some moving moments in the Elgar variations and dramatic ones in Beethoven’s 5th.
It was great to attend finally another NSO concert, played with enthusiasm, after such a long time, and we look forward to works by Arnold, Dvorak and Kalinnikov in March and Ethyl Smyth, Bruch and Rachmaninov in May at St.Nicholas’ Chapel.
