      EVENT DETAILS
      Bristol Concert Orchestra and Matthew Barley (cello) | Walton and Tchaikovsky

      The rollicking overture to Colas Breugnon by Kabalevsky raises the curtain on this winter-warmer concert of Anglo-Russian greats. Walton's Cello Concerto may be more lyrical, expressive and even introspective, but as Walton wrote to Piatigorsky (who had commissioned the work) 'I think it's the best of my three concertos – but don't tell Jascha' (Heifetz, for whom Walton composed his Violin Concerto). Renowned cellist Matthew Barley makes a welcome return to play this ravishingly beautiful work, and whose 'Discovering Music' programme discussing this work can be heard online at the BBC website.

      To finish, a true classic in Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony, overflowing with drama, sweeping melodies and emotional intensity from the very opening bars right through to the triumphant rollercoaster finale.

      There will be a retiring collection for Bristol Music Trust.

      Cost: £15, £12, £8 (concession £2 discount), under 18s £1 [+fee]
