Colston Hall, Bristol

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

Tasmin Little

Conductor: Owain Arwel Hughes
Violin: Tasmin Little

Programme:
Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture
Bruch Scottish Fantasy
Sibelius Symphony No 5

What with Mendelssohn’s atmospheric seascape and Bruch’s meditation on popular folk melodies, the first half of the programme offers a double Scotch! And more “Northern Lights” illuminate the second half as Sibelius’ majestic fifth symphony fills the air– a breathtaking voyage that culminates in a resplendent brass driven finale.
