HAYDN - Symphony No.104, London
DAVID HEATH - The Celtic Concerto
BEETHOVEN - Symphony No.2 in D major, Op.36

We are proud to welcome to Scarborough BBC Young Musician 2016 finalist and June Emerson Wind Music Young Artist, Jess Gillam. Jess will be joining us to perform Dave Heath's Celtic Concerto. Her incredible stage presence and deeply felt musicianship makes this a performance not to be missed.
We open the concert with Joseph Haydn's Symphony No.104. Nicknamed the 'London', the symphony was hailed as a triumph at the première and has been a firm favourite ever since.
We close the concert with Beethoven's Symphony No.2. This symphony was completed against the backdrop of his 'Heiligenstadt Testament'; the now famous document where he revealed his incurable deafness. This malady did not hinder Beethoven in writing one of his most joyous outpourings and affirmations of life.
