Martinu Rhapsody Concerto at St John's Smith Square

  • St John's Smith Square SW1P 3HA (map)

London Phoenix Orchestra’s spring concert features Sibelius’s Second Symphony, which the composer described as ‘a confession of the soul’, although critic Virgil Thompson’s assessment was more brutal: ‘vulgar, self-indulgent, and provincial beyond all description’. To offset the vulgarity, the first half opens with Harty’s breezy Comedy Overture before the orchestra is joined by Emmanuella Reiter for Martinu’s lyrical Rhapsody-Concerto.”
