A message from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: ‘We can’t wait to be back to performing live for you in Bexhill next season and thank you kindly for your continued support. In the meantime, if you’re missing live concerts as much as we are, why not join us online this spring for our series of streamed performances from the Royal Albert Hall, featuring star soloists Jess Gillam, Nicola Benedetti and Paul Lewis: www.rpo.co.uk/rahstreams‘
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra returns to Bexhill with a programme of glorious orchestral classics.
MOZART The Marriage of Figaro: Overture
BORODIN, arr. Sargent Nocturne
MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto
BEETHOVEN Symphony No.6, ‘Pastoral’
Brian Wright Conductor
Mayumi Kanagawa Violin
Opening with Mozart’s energetic Overture to The Marriage of Figaro which gives a foretaste of the comical opera that it introduces.
Multi-award-winning violinist Mayumi Kanagawa takes to the stage to perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. Described by legendary violinist Joseph Joachim as ‘the heart’s jewel’, this magnificent concerto is rightly considered one of the greatest masterpieces of the violin repertoire, from its unusual opening with the soloist entering first, through to its sparkling Allegro finale.
The evening concludes with Beethoven’s Symphony No.6, ‘Pastoral’. Conductor Brian Wright leads the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra through in this characterful work, from depictions of country folk dancing with frolicsome melodies, to the start of the rainfall and the thrill of the storm, returning safely back to calm in the uplifting final movement.
Customers should be aware that accessible seating is only available if requested through the Box Office.
