Description

Please come and join us for Banbury Chamber Orchestra’s May concert!

  • Sibelius: 'Pelleas and Melisande' Suite
  • Holst: Fugal Concerto
  • Haydn: Symphony No. 98

On the afternoon of Sunday 19 May the BCO will perform three diverse pieces for chamber orchestra. We start with Sibelius’ stirring suite of incidental music for Pelléas & Mélisande, a play by the symbolist playwright Maurice Maeterlinck. The first movement of this suite has been immortalised as the theme music to the BBC’s ‘Sky At Night’ programme.

Following this will be Holst’s short and entertaining Fugal Concerto, for flute, oboe and strings.

To end the programme we play Haydn’s Symphony No. 98, written in 1792 while the maestro was in London, and shortly after he had heard of the death of his great friend Mozart.

Tickets are £10 and 18s and under remain FREE!
