Magical mystery tour

You’ll have heard the story of “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” – where the young apprentice tries out his beginner’s magic in order to save himself work but hasn’t yet learnt the spell to stop it and ends up with a disaster?  The music by Dukas for this story is wonderfully evocative, even without the famous Disney cartoon accompaniment – we can’t wait to portray whirling brooms and out-of-control pails of water for you!

Magic of the musical kind pervades the rest of this concert, too.  We’ve invited top violinist Melina Mandozzi to join us to revel in the gorgeousness of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto – a favourite of all violinists.  To complete the concert, we present music infused with more stories and reminiscences: the Royal Hunt and Storm from Berlioz’ grand opera “The Trojans” and Rachmaninov’s deeply Russian “Symphonic Dances”.
