In the 120 years the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has been formed, it has worked with some of the greatest names in classical music, toured the world and inspired generations of music makers and music lovers.
The musicians will be taking to the stage at The Anvil on April 19 at 7.45pm, delivering an ensemble of classical pieces from the famous Russian composers Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Sergei Rachmaninoff.
Kirill Karabits will conduct the orchestra with soloist Nemanja Radulovic, who has been making a splash in the music world with his free-spirited performances.
The programme will begin with Rachmaninov’s First Symphony, a strong and characteristic piece, which shows the young composer flexing his compositional muscles to telling effect.
This is followed by Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto which begins in heroic vein and continues with a tender slow movement. The spectacular finale takes the form of a whirling Russian dance. Delivering the Violin Concerto, is Radulovic, a multi-award winning violinist who has been a master of the instrument since 1993, boasting a vast discography and range of concert appearances.
The concert concludes with Rachmaninov’s Caprice Bohemian, initially brooding, then lively fantasy on gypsy themes; this masterpiece took two years to perfect in the late 1800s.
Tickets for the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra are priced from £14 to £40 which includes £2 booking fee.
