Event description

Description

Director of Orchestras Rebecca Miller and the Royal Holloway Symphony Orchestra open their final event of the Concert Series with Dorothy Howell’s orchestra overture, The Rock. It’s majestic and visionary depictions of the craggy steeps of Gibraltar are matched in evocative beauty and explosive virtuosity by the piece that follows, as Max Bruch used his first violin concerto to capture the intense skill required to play the instrument to a high standard, this evening performed by a 2019 Royal Holloway Concerto Competition winner, Daniel Gurner. Sheer beauty, heart-breaking melodies and jubilant chorales also run through both the Bruch and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition to finish the concert. Musical storytelling at its best.


Programme

Dorothy Howell (1898-1982): The Rock
Max Bruch (1838-1920): Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 26
Modest Mussorgsky (1839-1881): Pictures at an Exhibition (orchestral arrangement by Maurice Ravel)

Car parking

When you arrive for a College event at our Egham campus, please park in car parks 12 or 4.

Car park 12 can be accessed by turning right as you enter the main College gates and is located next to the tennis courts. If this car park is full, please drive further onto our campus to car park 4, which can be accessed by turning left at the mini-roundabout behind the Students’ Union. If you find both of these car parks full, we have a further large car park 14, which can be used by event guests and is located across the A30 on our North Campus, accessed via Harvest Road. You can see each of our car parks on the map opposite. We would advise that you bring the College map to campus with you and give yourself plenty of time to park.

Blue Badge holders can find designated parking spaces in Car park 1W, as well as between Gardeners Lodge and the Williams Annexe. You can find these locations by looking at our campus map opposite. If you require any assistance on arrival, please contact our premises team in advance of your visit by emailing: premisesadmin@royalholloway.ac.uk and they will be happy to help.
