  • 30 October 2018 - 7:30pm
    In the Face of Adversity | Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
    Lionel Bringuier, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Valeriy Sokolov
    Royal Festival Hall London SE1 8XX
    United Kingdom

    Opening the series with a concerto described as a “pithy 'Shakespearian' role” by celebrated violinist David Oistrakh, Valeriy Sokolov performs one of the most gripping violin concertos in the repertoire. No Russian composer has experienced the oppressive hand of the Soviet state more than Dmitri Shostakovich, and whilst Stalin silenced many artists, it was only after Stalin’s death that Shostakovich dared to publish his Violin Concerto No.1.

    The emotional intensity swells after the interval when Lionel Bringuier conducts one of the most abundantly lyrical and superbly crafted masterpieces, Rachmaninov’s Symphony No.2. Beset by self-doubt and depression in the years following his First Symphony, Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony restored his self-belief as a symphonist. Journeying from darkness, through an exquisite slow movement and concluding with a joyous triumphant finale, his Second Symphony is sixty minutes of the most glorious music from the symphonic repertoire.

    Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No 1 in A minor
    Dmitry Shostakovich (1906-1975)
    Symphony No 2 in E minor
    Sergey Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
  • 1 November 2018 - 7:45pm
    Vienna Tonkünstler Orchestra
    Angela Hewitt, Vienna Tonkünstler Orchestra, Yutaka Sado
    The Anvil Basingstoke RG21 7QR
    United Kingdom

    The jaunty overture to Bernstein’s hit show which follows three sailors in New York makes a rousing opening to this concert in his centenary year. Beethoven’s last piano concerto is his most brilliant and powerful. The confident outer movements are balanced by an inward-looking slow movement, which moves into the finale with a simple but magical transition. Sibelius’s fifth and most well-known symphony grows from the seed of its tiny opening figure to the most outwardly heroic of his seven works in the form. The final majestic brass theme was inspired by a flight of swans the awe-struck composer saw wheeling over his house in the countryside.

    Pre-concert talk, 6.30pm The Forge - to book your free ticket(s), please call the box office on 01256 844244

    Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 5 in E flat, 'Emperor'

    Featuring a cast of young professional singers, this production presents an elegant take on the comedy. Set to some of Mozart's most glorious music, the opera is performed in the original Italian with English surtitles, with piano accompaniment. The creative team is headed by international opera director, Ptolemy Christie, and designer Leah Sams.

    Premièred in 1790, Mozart's Così fan tutte remains one of the most loved and performed of all operas around the world, and includes the famous arias Come scoglio and Un’aura amorosa, as well as the divine trio Soave sia il vento. Also known as The school for lovers, the opera tells a wry and light-hearted tale of love, fidelity, and human infallibility.
