European Union Chamber Orchestra

We welcome the European Union Chamber Orchestra and their Director, Eva Stegeman, back to Stamford for another orchestral concert. The EUCO gave its first concerts in 1981 and soon gained a worldwide reputation as a musical ambassador for the European Union. Its Patron is Queen Sofia of Spain. On this visit they are joined by Nicholas Daniel in Mozart’s Oboe Concerto. Having won BBC Young Musician in 1980, Nicholas Daniel is now regarded as the foremost oboist working in Britain today.

Mozart’s concerto is currently one of the most important in the oboe repertoire, but for many years it was lost. Its parts were rediscovered in Salzburg only in 1920. The concerto is preceded by movements from Mozart’s Serenade in D major, K 185, written in 1773 for a friend, Judas Thaddaus Antretter, who was completing his studies at Salzburg University.

The concert ends with Tchaikovsky’s beautiful Serenade for Strings. Tchaikovsky described it to his patron, Nadezhda von Meck, as a “heartfelt piece and so, I dare to think, is not lacking in real qualities”. It is regarded as one of the Romantic movement’s definitive compositions.
