FEATURING

Vassily Sinaisky – Conductor

Behzod Abduraimov – Piano

PROGRAMME

Tchaikovsky Sleeping Beauty (Highlights), 25′

Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2, 23′

Elgar Enigma Variations, 31′

The Enigma Variations are quite simply one of the best-loved masterpieces in the whole of British music. And rightly: Elgar’s musical portrait gallery of his Worcestershire friends is one of those pieces that always sounds new. No Russian conductor loves British music more than Vassily Sinaisky, but he’s got Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty in his blood. Behzod Abduraimov, meanwhile, could have been born to play Saint-Saëns’ flamboyant Second Piano Concerto.

CBSO+ 1pm: Professor Rachel Cowgill, Head of Music & Drama from the University of Huddersfield, focusses on Elgar as the most loved and most 'English' of English composers.

Timings: Leave Leominster 9:00am., Hereford at 9:30am., Ross on Wye at 10:15am. With time for lunch before the performance.
Depart at 4:30pm and travel back to Ross at 6:30pm, Hereford at 7pm and then Leominster at 7:20pm.
