    Our May concert pays musical homage to the close friendship that existed between Dvořák and Brahms. Dvořák's serenely beautiful Serenade for Strings - one of his most popular works - is framed by Brahms's muscular Tragic Overture and his glorious and long awaited First Symphony. Thomas Kemp, who conducted a highly acclaimed string concert with CCO in 2013, conducts.

    We end our 2014/15 series with an exciting programme that pairs two classics from the Twentieth Century repertoire with one of Mozart's finest piano concertos. Stravinsky's energetic Symphony in Three Movements and Copland's wonderful ballet score, Appalachian Spring - both written during the Second War - provide a contrasting backdrop to Mozart's exquisite 22nd Piano Concerto. Chris Hopkins, who charmed audience and orchestra alike with his Rachmaninov Paganini variations in 2014, makes a very welcome return as soloist. Paul Hoskins conducts.
