On Saturday 18 November, Bridgewater Sinfonia is delighted to welcome a brilliant young pianist to Berkhamsted School’s Centenary Theatre: Jeneba Kanneh-Mason will be playing Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto, composed when Chopin was even younger than our soloist. It contains the indescribably beautiful Nocturne of the second movement which will certainly be familiar to many of our audience. This is a performance not to be missed.
The programme starts with three of Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances, lively and full of national character and considered to be among the composer’s most memorable works. To finish the evening we present Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 4, both romantic and turbulent, an expression of the composer’s inmost emotions and a superb showcase for the orchestra which this year is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
