    The fairy-tale magic of Hansel and Gretel, so brilliantly captured in Humperdinck's Overture, provides an appropriately seasonal opening to our Christmas concert. Anna-Liisa Bezrodny, who captivated audiences with her stunning performance of Sibelius’s Concerto with CCO in 2012, makes an eagerly anticipated return, performing Tchaikovsky's virtuosic Concerto. Dvorák’s ever popular Ninth Symphony, with its ingenious reflections of the composer's time in the New World, will guarantee to bring the concert to a rousing close.

    Bernstein Symphonic Dances from West Side Story
    Korngold Violin Concerto
    Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances
    Monday 24 June 2013, 7:30pm

    Not quite a night at the movies, but this American-inspired programme borrows much from Hollywood and Broadway. Bernstein's ever-popular Symphonic Dances - so much more than a medley of music from his hit show, West Side Story - is mirrored with Rachmaninov’s autobiographical work of the same name. The two are separated by Korngold’s Violin Concerto, which marked his return to mainstream composing from his highly successful career as a film composer during the Second World War. Buried in the music are themes from many of his fabulous film scores, including The Prince and the Pauper and Another Dawn.

    Berlioz distilled the essence of Shakespeare’s comedy Much Ado about Nothing in the overture to his opera, Béatrice et Bénédict, which opens our May concert under the baton of Adrian Brown. Mathieu van Bellen will perform Britten’s rarely heard violin concerto before the evening is completed with Brahms’s third Symphony – proclaimed by Hans Richter, who conducted the premiere, as ‘Brahms’s Eroica’.
