Compèred by Classic FM’s Jane Jones, this will be an orchestral celebration of beauty, passion and dance with the critically acclaimed Bath Philharmonia, the Festival’s Artistic Director Jason Thornton and the celebrated violinist Chloë Hanslip. We will take you on an exuberant orchestral dance across Europe courtesy of Beethoven, Brahms, Dvořák, Saint-Saëns, Rimsky Korsakov, and Mendelssohn. The programme includes two of the greatest works for violin and orchestra: Vaughan Williams’ timeless evocation of the English countryside The Lark Ascending celebrating the 150th anniversary of his birth and the raw passion of the Romany inspired Tzigane by Ravel.
