BBC National Orchestra of Wales – June 2020
Please note this event has cancelled. Our Box Office will be touch with details on crediting your customer account, or how you can donate the cost of your ticket to the Cheltenham Trust.
Our rousing series finale features Beethoven’s uplifting Egmont Overture – similar in style to his 5th Symphony and reflecting the heroism of a 16th century nobleman’s battle for freedom against the odds. This is followed by a sharp contrast, with the introspection and acceptance of fate, life and death that Richard Strauss brought to his final work, Four Last Songs, composed in 1948 when he was 84. Its sublime harmonies and orchestration place it near the pinnacle of 20th century musical genius. Ending the evening is one of Rachmaninov’s two best-known works, loved for its breadth, scale and its sumptuous 3rd movement Adagio theme.
Pre-Concert Talk (6.30pm to 7pm): Presented by members of the BBC NOW team.
Free entry using your ticket for the concert.
Please note there is a £2 ticket commission fee included in the price of the ticket.
