The Great Romantics

During the Oakville Chamber Orchestra’s first concert of the season, they present two serenades that have turned eyes into cartoon hearts for decades. The common theme: both works draw inspiration from Mozart—both in tone and structure.

  • Dvořák—Serenade for Winds: Written when Dvořák was just beginning to achieve fame in his late ’30s, the Serenade for Winds’ classic form pays homage to Mozart and Haydn. Not only does the piece look back to late 18th-century styles, it nods to Czech nationalism—represented by peasant dances—and revolves around a polka motif while strictly using the harmonic language of the 1870s.
  • Tchaikovsky–Serenade for Strings: Fresh off penning his grandiose 1812 Overture, Tchaikovsky used his admiration for Mozart as a jumping-off point for this serene composition played in four parts.

Oakville Chamber Orchestra

In 1984 a small group of string players gathered together to try out a few songs—starting what would eventually blossom into a full orchestra. While retaining that simple spirit and keeping strings as its core, the Oakville Chamber Orchestra now encompasses wind, brass, and percussion sections, along with a keytar section when called for by Mozart. Yet chamber music remains the orchestra's favorite, and most concerts focus on creating an intimate, small-scale experience. Whether performing on its own, with a special guest soloist, the Oakville Chamber Orchestra continues to be, in the words of Mayor Rob Burton, a "world-class orchestra."
