Orchestra of St John’s – Schumann and Wagner
Rupert Egerton-Smith, piano
Orchestra of St John’s
Mozart Marriage of Figaro overture
Schumann Piano Concerto
Wagner Siegfried Idyll
Inspired by his wife Clara, Schumann’s tender piano concerto was a true labour of love, written over a four-year period. His only completed concerto for the instrument, it remains one of his most popular works and tonight will be played by OSJ Artist in Residence Rupert Egerton-Smith. The evening culminates with the ever-wonderful Siegfried Idyll.
