It is a relief and joy to return to performing after an 18 month hiatus.  We welcome comments from the audience and below are a selection:

Mozart and Bach: conductor George Caird, Oct 21

It was such a pleasure to see the Oxford Sinfonia in action again after so long in abeyance.  George Caird knows how to make the music of the 18th century come to life.  The Brandenburg had style and elegance with memorable violino piccolo playing and lovely strong braying horns.  Mozart’s symphony 29, delicious and completely captivating to its sizzling conclusion.  A delight.      Anthony

Oxford Sinfonia are such a joy to conduct.  The wind playing was spectacular and the string sound, particularly in the quiet passages, was sublime.    George Caird

 

Mozart’s Don Giovanni: conductor Ian Brown, Sep 21

This was the first Oxford Sinfonia concert I’ve attended and it certainly won’t be the last.  What a superb occasion with excellent orchestra and soloists contributing to the varied atmospheres of manipulation, romance and menace within the performance.   Sue

Wonderful music performed with style and verve!  The orchestra and singers did us proud.  And wonderful to see the Sheldonian (safely) packed again.   Cathy

It was a great concert, so well done everyone.  Wonderful soloists ably accompanied by the orchestra.   Sue
