Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Bristol

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
A SYMPHONIC celebration of music will take place in Bristol later this year as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra arrives in the city.
From the best classical music played by international conductors and soloists such as Marin Alsop, Julian Rachlin and Stephen Hough, to an evening for Rodgers and Hammerstein fans with a quartet of fabulous West End Singers - there is something for everyone.
The musical group starts as it means to go on, opening with sparkling Mendelssohn, Prokofiev’s 20th century masterwork exploring ‘the grandeur of the human spirit’, and operatically inclined Berlioz.
Joining the conductor for the Mendelssohn is multi-award-winning French violinist Renaud Capuçon, a serial chamber collaborator with the likes of Argerich, Barenboim and Bashmet.
The on-going close relationship with former principal conductor, Marin Alsop, is sustained in 2011-12, as she returns for Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 and Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini with Denis Kozhukhin.
The orchestra continues to foster the talent of the future with a roster of young maestros who are becoming increasingly well-established on the international stage.
The show will begin at 7.30pm on October 6.
