Lunchtime Concert - Exquisite Strings

Exquisite Strings


Elder Conservatorium Chamber Orchestra
Elizabeth Layton
Connor Whyte  guitar*

Holst St Paul’s Suite in C Major
Carulli Concerto in E Minor for Guitar and Orchestra, Op. 140*
Nielsen Little Suite for Strings, Op. 1

Gustav Holst’s C Major Suite is a light-hearted piece composed for his students in the St Paul’s Girls’ School. Carulli’s Guitar Concerto in E Minor is a milestone of the repertoire and an exceptionally balanced and refined work of the Classical period. From the elegiac opening to the heroic final movement, Nielsen’s Little Suite for Strings is a great collection of human emotions.
