Mozart   Divertimento in D K.136
Neruda   Trumpet Concerto in E-flat
Grieg   Holberg Suite Op. 40


In a glowing start to the season, the Elder Conservatorium Chamber Orchestra presents favourites from three intertwining musical eras, beginning in the Classical age before revisiting earlier days still with a central work by Bohemain composer Johann Baptist Neruda. In the ‘Holberg Suite’ we bridge two centuries, recalling Baroque times through the music of a 19th-century composer.
