Huntingdonshire Philharmonic

antonia_brown_web_3The Huntingdonshire Philharmonic Society, affectionately known as Hunts Phil, performs five or six concerts each year.

We perform a variety of choral and orchestral works to suit every taste. Our Christmas performances are especially popular.

The Society always welcomes new members and at present is keen to attract additional singers, brass and string players. The emphasis of rehearsals is that of enjoyment and learning, whilst working to present performances of a high standard to our audiences.

If you are interested in joining Hunts Phil, please email secretary@huntsphil.org.uk

We look forward to performing for you.

Beethoven Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”
Haydn Harmoniemesse
Nicola Ihnatowicz, soprano
Harriet Webb, mezzo soprano
Nick Allen, tenor
Dominic Sedgwick, baritone

Beethoven’s “Pastoral” symphony belongs to a long tradition of descriptive music. Nature in rustic country scenes and the inevitable storm are all present – with descriptive titles to match, but Beethoven’s own subtitle, “More an expression of feeling than a painting”, perhaps gives the real key to this symphony’s enduring appeal.

The Harmoniemesse or “Wind-band Mass” was Haydn’s last grand full scale work, and his only Mass to use a full complement of wind instruments. Sections of magnificent choral writing integrate with passages for soloists, and in the final climactic ending Haydn adds his farewell as the last notes of the “Dona nobis pacem” soar heavenwards.
