Bristol Concert Orchestra offers a concert to delight and thrill on Saturday 8 December at St George's Bristol under conductor Stefan Hofkes.
The concert opens with a seasonal touch in Delius' delightful Winter Night (Sleigh Ride) and Virtuoso cellist Joseph Spooner ('a joy to listen to' - The Times) will then enthral with Tchaikovsky's Variations on a Rococo Theme - heard here in Tchaikovsky's rarely-performed original version. The concert will conclude with Mahler's 5th Symphony: Evoking despair, grief, anger, anxiety, profound love (in the Adagietto - famously used in the film 'Death in Venice') and finally explosive Joy, prepare to be swept away by this emotional and virtuosic juggernaut.
A true winter-warmer!
There will be a retiring collection in aid of Parkinson's UK.
