Dive Into An Exciting Classical Season At The Assembly Hall Theatre This Winter!
RTWSO: World War 1 Commemoration
Sunday 4 November
From The Royal Tunbridge Wells Symphony Orchestra…
“This month, our concert is devoted to commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War. It will be more than just a Symphony Orchestra concert: a varied programme of music will be interspersed with readings and poetry all relevant to the Great War. Music performed will include Holst’s ‘Planets’ suite, ‘The Banks of Green Willow’, one of just a few works by George Butterworth, a gifted British composer who died tragically young during the conflict, French composer Maurice Ravel who drove an ambulance during the War and some of the wonderful music John Williams composed for the award winning film ‘War Horse’. We remember the fallen with the ‘Pie Jesu’ from Fauré’s well known setting of the Requiem Mass and we will end this very special concert with the whole of Elgar’s ‘Enigma Variations’.”
RTWSO: Nicola Benedetti
Sunday 2 December
“We are especially pleased to welcome back Nicola Benedetti to perform Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No 2 in this concert. She is now an internationally acclaimed soloist and we are privileged to have her play again with the RTWSO. The Prokofiev concerto is a more lyrical and straightforward work than some of the composer’s early avant-garde works and as part of it was written in Paris, it fits with the French theme of this concert. Our programme also includes Bizet, Ravel and César Franck.”
Orchestra Of The Swan Presents Vivaldi And Piazzolla
Sunday 13 January
Baroque meets sizzling tango in this enticing programme of works spirited by 200 years and two continents. Eight breath-taking seasons are experienced in contrasting hemispheres, with movements intermingled to show the influence of Vivaldi on Piazzolla.
English Symphony Orchestra Present Celebration Of Dvořák
Sunday 27 January
Join Kenneth Woods and the ESO for the celebration of the greatest of all Czech composers with today’s distinguished Czech violin virtuoso, Pavel Šporcl. Šporcl’s recording of his countryman’s concerto has been hailed by Gramophone as “… a warmly idiomatic reading … tonal variety and expressiveness … magnetic.” The concert opens with a lively selection of Slavonic Dances and ends with a performance of Dvořák’s vibrant and tuneful Eighth Symphony.”
