Schumann - Piano Concerto Soloist: Ivana Gavric
Mahler - Symphony No. 1

We hope you can join the Basingstoke Symphony Orchestra on Saturday 15th June for music by two of the greats of romantic music: Gustav Mahler and Robert Schumann. The BSO plays Mahler’s  First Symphony: packed with the sounds of nature, this exciting work climaxes with an epic depiction of the struggle between life and death.

Acclaimed pianist Ivana Gavric returns to the orchestra to perform Schumann’s lyrical Piano Concerto, music overflowing with melody. Schumann wrote the Concerto for his wife, Clara, herself a composer and celebrated pianist.

Conductor and composer Stephen Scotchmer describes his short orchestral piece En Vancances as having been “inspired by many enjoyable visits to Marseillan, a sunny oasis on the Mediterranean coast.” It is the latest in a recent series of exciting and colourful pieces written for the BSO.
