Stephen Hough Plays Dvorak
Conductor -Tom Gauterin
Beethoven -King Stephen Overture
Dvořák -Piano Concerto
Tchaikovsky -Symphony No. 5
Stephen Hough, one of the world’s greatest pianists, joins the Bristol Classical Players (on their Cheltenham debut) for a rare performance of Dvořák’s beautiful Piano Concerto. This charming masterpiece, inspired by the woods and wildlife of his native Bohemia, has a famously difficult piano part that led to its neglect for many years – but tonight’s performance will show how, in sympathetic hands, Dvořák’s fragile music can shine. This is followed by Tchaikovsky’s passionate 5th Symphony, one of the best-loved of all Romantic symphonies. In this towering work, Tchaikovsky starts with doubt and wrestles with Fate itself – before emerging triumphant.

Breathtaking, unique and radiating regency refinement, Pittville Pump Room is monument to the more than 100 years of fame Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town, and perhaps the most famous example of regency architecture in the area.
