Sinfonia celebrates Romanticism and Post-Romanticism with repertoire spanning more than 100 years and multiple continents.

The Serenade No. 1 by Brahms represents the symphonic master’s first venture into the idiom, and Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2, one of the composer’s most popular works, will feature Ian Hobson as conductor and soloist. To close the program and the season, Sinfonia performs Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, charting the composer’s late style with fascinating instrumental colors and interesting harmonies.
