Gorton Philharmonic end their 2022/23 concert season with a programme of America-related works by Delius, Rachmaninov and Dvořák. The concert opens, appropriately enough, with Daybreak from Delius’s popular Florida Suite, composed after Englishman Delius had ended a two-year stint as manager of an orange grove in the U.S. state. Gorton Philharmonic then welcomes back pianist Daniel Ropota, to perform Rachmaninov’s beautiful and enduring Piano Concerto No.2 in C minor – one of the most popular classical works ever written, and composed in 1901, seventeen years before he emigrated to the U.S. The orchestra’s 2022/2023 season ends with Dvořák’s most well-known and much-loved work; his Symphony No.9 in E minor ‘From the New World’, written 130 years ago during a three-year stay in America where he was the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America.
