BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Cheltenham

Event ended

Editor's Choice

The brand new Cheltenham Concert Series launches with a bang at the Town Hall this September, with a powerful live performance from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

The exceptionally popular Cheltenham Concert Series returns to Cheltenham Town Hall on Saturday 17 September 2011, with a performance from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Launching the new autumn series in style, classic music lovers will enjoy a programme spanning ‘Les Offrandes Oubliées’, which organisers describe as a musical triptych in which Messiaen displays his strong spiritual convictions.

The French theme is set to continue during the live Cheltenham concert with ‘Cello Concerto No.1, A minor’, a work by Saint-Saëns featuring soloist Steven Isserlis – who is described as one of Britain’s leading cellists and a favourite with local concert-goers.

And last, but not least, Sibelius’ mighty ‘Symphony No.2 in D major’ will provide plenty of passion and intensity – all presided over by Scandinavian conductor Thomas Søndergärd who will be making his Cheltenham debut.
