Frome Symphony is delighted to welcome Lukas Hank back as soloist in the violin concerto by Beethoven. One of Beethoven’s most popular pieces, this is a tour de force for the soloist and orchestra alike. In the second half of the concert, the orchestra performs Dvořák’s 7th symphony. Although not performed as frequently as the New World symphony, the 7th is arguably Dvořák’s finest work incorporating beautiful melodies and engaging dance tunes from 19th century Bohemia. Frome Symphony is conducted by Mark Gateshill. Tickets £12 adult, £5 under 18.
Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet
Wagner: Siegfried Idyll
Bruch: Kol Nidrei
Bernstein: Symphonic Dances from West Side Story
