York Guildhall Orchestra
Saturday 10 February 2018
"Although Ian Bousfield currently lives in Switzerland, York is his home town so it will be a double pleasure for us to welcome him to the Barbican for this concert. The Ferdinand David Concertino is a delightful but rarely played piece; the Pryor variations are insanely difficult but fantastic to listen to!
The other main piece for this concert will be the Beethoven Eroica symphony - a surprising first performance for the YGO. Berlioz will be represented by his overture Les Francs-Juges, full of grandeur and fizz - and of course with trombones to the fore!"
