Booking Information

Buses from Alnwick and Hexham

Venue: Sage One

Tickets: £13, £20, £30 & £38


Thomas Zehetmair conductor
Steven Hudson oboe
Royal Northern Sinfonia

Webern Symphony
C P E Bach Oboe Concerto in B flat
Mahler Adagietto from Symphony No.5
Schubert Symphony No.9 ‘The Great’

Bookending CPE Bach’s gallant concerto and Mahler’s audience favourite, this programme showcases two very different approaches to symphonic form.

Webern’s short two movement work presents the symphony at its most concentrated, while Schubert’s majestic ‘Great’ C Major is his most expansive, a prime example of the composer’s famous ‘heavenly length’.
