Saffron Walden Symphony Orchestra

Presented by Saffron Walden Symphony Orchestra

A close up of the entire Saffron Walden Symphony Orchestra in concert.

Saffron Walden Symphony Orchestra is delighted to welcome Charlotte Treadaway as soloist in Glazunov's virtuosic but lyrical Saxophone Concerto, written in 1934.

The concert opens with Brahms' evergreen Academic Festival Overture which uses student songs from the time as its melodic material. We close with Saint-Saëns' third symphony. Subtitled "Organ" it is a dramatic but also intimate work full of melody and colour. A piano duet adds sparkle and brass contribute to the grand sound of the organ, in this case played by local musician Richard Carr.
