      Tristan Gurney violin/director
      Royal Northern Sinfonia

      Strauss Capriccio Sextet, Op.85
      Wagner Siegfried Idyll
      Mahler (arr. Farrington) Symphony No.1 in D major

      RNS returns to Richmond under its leader Bradley Creswick, with a superb programme.

      First comes the sextet which opens Strauss’s opera, Capriccio, which brings the composer’s rich instrumental textures to a stylized recreation of elegant Rococo chamber music. It’s a miniature delight.

      Next is Wagner’s famous and very recognisable  Siegfried Idyll , which threatens to drown the listener in a warm sea of gorgeousness. Lucky Cosima Wagner. Did any man ever give his wife a better birthday present?

      After the interval, we hear the First Symphony by Mahler, famous for the enormous scale of his instrumentation. Yes, a chamber orchestra can play Mahler, but it does need to be a very good chamber orchestra.
