Southampton Concert Orchestra: Summer 2019
SATURDAY 29 JUNE - 7:30 PM
Presented by Southampton Concert Orchestra
Southampton Concert Orchestra return to Turner Sims with a programme of British and Russian music.
In the first half, music From Malcolm Arnold and William Walton written in the 1950’s. The concert will open with Arnold’s musical depiction of Robert Burn’s epic poem, Tam O’Shanter, before Walton’s stunningly evocative Cello Concerto. We are delighted to welcome back Philip Daish-Handy of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra as soloist. The second half concludes with Shostakovich’s First Symphony, written at the age of 19 as his graduation piece from the St Petersburg conservatoire.
