Walton Symphony No 1 43’

Our orchestra-in-residence presents three visionary orchestral pieces under the assured baton of Martyn Brabbins, beginning with Stravinsky’s sparkling Firebird Suite, as fresh and invigorating today as it was a century ago. Brimming over with savage emotional intensity, Walton’s ferociously compelling First Symphony concludes the concert, while Berlioz’s Les nuits d’été – despite its innocuous title – explores a life cycle of love and loss.
