Bristol Concert Orchestra • Frankie Carr (cello) • Jo Edwards (violin) • Stefan Hofkes (conductor)

Saturday 9 March, 2019
St George's Bristol, 7.30pm

Bantock The Sea Reivers

Bruch Kol Nidrei (Adagio on two Hebrew melodies) for cello and orchestra

Saint-Saens La Muse et le Poète for violin, cello and orchestra

Schubert Symphony No.9 ‘The Great’

The tumultuous conclusion of Bantock's Sea Reivers (a 'Hebridean Sea-Poem' depicting the exploits of Hebridean pirates), gives way to the captivating beauty and calm of Bruch's Kol Nidrei (Adagio on two Hebrew melodies) for solo cello and orchestra.

Young virtuoso cellist Frankie Carr is then joined by talented local violinist Jo Edwards playing the rhapsodic muse to the more grounded poet in the Saint-Saens rarity La Muse et le Poète - something of an intimate conversation between the two instruments, with the violin coaxing the cello into ever more elaborate excursions upwards towards the energetic close.

For the grand finale, Schubert's 'Great' Symphony (No.9). The last symphony he completed, it was written when he (mistakenly) thought his ill-health had abated, so this work 'of heavenly length' is full of the joys of life and rhythmical vigour including the breathtaking and restless last movement relentlessly propelling us towards the majestic conclusion.
