Anglia Ruskin Orchestra and Chorus, together with professional chamber orchestra Symphonia Academica, present a programme of symphonic and choral music for their autumn concert, including Mozart’s majestic Symphony no. 39 in Eb, and the delightful Divertimento in D major. Bela Bartók’s wonderfully inventive set of six Romanian Folk Dances prepare the way for a performance of Handel’s Dixit Dominus, one of the most thrilling and moving of the composer’s works for voices and orchestra, composed when he was only 21 years old.
