The orchestra performed the rousing Prelude to Wagner's Meistersinger. The choir joined them for Fauré's wonderful, consoling Requiem, and for the world premier of our conductor Oliver Till's arrangement of Janáček's Říkadla.
Here is what Ollie says about this charming piece:
"Říkadlo (pl. Říkadla) comes from the Czech verb říkat (to say) and describes a genre of children's literature consisting of short nonsense rhymes, where the humour is based on sound, absurdities and word games.
