The best soloist teams up with the Nottingham Symphony Orchestra in a concert of European classics
Conducted by Derek Williams, the concert begins at 7.30pm in the spectacular setting of the church on High Pavement and features performances of a number of popular European classics.
NSO will play a selection of moves from Grieg’s two Peer Gynt sequels, including the hugely popular Morning Mood and the exciting and highly atmospheric In The Hall Of The Mountain King.
You will also have the opportunity to hear the marvelous Adagio of Spartacus, by Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian, famously used in the 1970s as the theme music for the popular BBC nautical drama, The Onedin Line.
Acclaimed young violinist Callum Smart will be the guest soloist in a performance of Glazunov’s sparkling Violin Concerto. One of Britain’s most dynamic violin soloists, his appearance in this concert is not to be missed for classical music fans in the region.
The second half will feature Borodin’s percussive, engaging and melodious Second Symphony, always a welcome addition to any concert programme.
Following this concert, the Nottingham Symphony Orchestra will then be in action at Southwell Minster on 26 November, providing musical support for a Last Night of the Proms style concert featuring the Bingham and District Choral Society and the Mansfield Choral Society.
