Let’s Build a Town (Wir Bauen eine Stadt)
With chamber music by Mozart, Strauss and Hindemith
Piano Trio in B flat Op 97 ‘Archduke’
The musicians of McOpera return for another exciting event performing alongside some of our most talented young people. This time our performers - singers, dancers and instrumentalists - join to present Paul Hindemith’s delightful 1930 mini-opera Let’s Build a Town. It was a pioneering work in children’s opera and Hindemith was present at the UK premiere in Glasgow just a few months after the Berlin world premiere. The programme also includes a colourful selection of chamber music, including a new commission for Milngavie Music Club.
"[they] knew how to enchant with the finest of colours and the very softest of shades... a miracle of sound that kept the audience in a tight grip until the very end... The trio was given a huge ovation"
