Sheffield International Concert Season 2023/24
Daniel Pioro director/violin
Sir Michael Morpurgo presenter
Josie D’Arby narrator
Pre-Concert Talk 1.30pm
Prokofiev Peter and the Wolf
Vivaldi Four Seasons with poetry readings by Sir Michael Morpurgo
Following on from last season’s CBeebies concert, this year’s specially created matinee is designed to appeal to all ages, from younger audience members, experiencing classical music for the first time, to those who have been attending concerts for many years.
Guided by violinist Daniel Pioro, Manchester Camerata will perform two iconic works: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. The illustrious author, Sir Michael Morpurgo, has been so inspired by the music of Baroque composer Antonin Vivaldi that he has written poems to compliment this evocative work and in this performance, he will read them between each of the Four Seasons.
In the first half, award-winning television presenter Josie D’Arby will tell the story of Peter and the Wolf, where each of the characters are represented by different orchestral instruments. One of Prokofiev’s most frequently performed works, it has been introducing young people to the orchestra since its composition almost 90 years ago.
