Back to 2007/08 season

From Front to Back (Audrey Baird, Feb.1st 2008)

GriegPiano Concerto (1st mvt.)
MendelssohnViolin Concerto (2nd mvt.)
GounodFlute Concertino
MarcelloOboe Concerto (2nd and 3rd mvts.)
BottesiniGran Duo Concertante for violin and double bass
WeberClarinet Concertino

DebussyClaire de Lune
MozartHorn Concerto No.4 (1st and 3rd mvts)
HummelTrumpet Concerto (2nd and 3rd mvts)
BeethovenSymphony No.6 ("Pastoral") (2nd mvt)

So what's the plan here? In other words, whence the title? The order of appearance of the solo instruments gives the clue: piano, violin, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet - from the front of the platform (assuming the piano is playing a concerto) to the back! And the full orchestra to finish with.
