Two orchestral classics precede a forgotten English masterpiece in tonight’s programme conducted by Adrian Partington.
A contemporary of Vaughan Williams and Parry, Armstrong Gibbs’s music is filled with the lush harmonies of their music. In his Second Symphony, he brings to life the thrilling Greek legend of Odysseus.
Before, a chance to hear Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and Copland’s best-loved work, Appalachian Spring. Fusing jubilant dances and reverent hymns, the piece takes the listener on a journey across the full range of human emotion.
