Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra is delighted to return to Plymouth with a concert at the Guildhall showcasing the variety of classical music.

The concert opens with Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin, a 20th-century view on the French Baroque tradition. The piece was originally composed for solo piano and then beautifully orchestrated, showing the different colours of the Orchestra in a way only Ravel could.

The Orchestra is then joined by French cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, equally at home in the world of early and classical music and consequently a perfect soloist for Haydn’s much-loved Cello Concerto, one of the favourite pieces in the cello repertoire.

In the second half of the concert, conductor Frank Zielhorst leads the BSO through Beethoven’s Second Symphony, a life-affirming, joyful work despite the composer’s turmoil and struggle with the onset of deafness during the time of composition.

Ravel – Le tombeau de Couperin
Haydn – Cello Concerto in C
Beethoven – Symphony No.2
