Leys Orchestra kicks off their return to live concerts in Warkworth, with a programme headlined with the beautiful Concertino for Cor Anglais and Orchestra by Gaetino Donizetti.

Also featured is the triple Concerto in G for Flute, Oboe d'Amore and Viola GWV.333 by Christoph Graupner. He was a prolific composer, a contemporary of Handel and Telemann, and one-time rival of JS Bach. 

The concert will premiere an early work by NZ composer David Hamilton recently revised and re-orchestrated for Leys Orchestra. Titled 'The Celestial Gate of Praise', influences of the Armenian/American composer Alan Hovhanes are apparent in this youthful piece.

The programme also includes instrumental extracts from Henry Purcell's opera 'The Fairy Queen', and a short waltz titled 'Mina' by Edward Elgar. This is named after the composer's Cairn terrier, the last completed orchestral work written just weeks before the composer's death.

Admission is free.
