Next Concert - 17 November 2013

Our next concert will take place on Sunday 17th November 2013. Jean Sibelius AlexanderSitkovetsky

Come and enjoy a fabulous evening of music with the Winchester Symphony Orchestra. Under their Musical Director Nicholas Wilks, the orchestra will be accompanying the virtuoso violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky. From New York to Melbourne this Russian-born Menuhin prodigy has been hailed "intuitive," "thrilling," "dazzling," and "sensitive," - and he joins the orchestra once again, this time to play the passionate and beautiful Sibelius' Violin Concerto.

This gorgeous work will be followed by Shostakovich's darkly magnificent 11th Symphony. Once described as 'A film score without the film,' the symphony evokes the turbulent Russian uprisings of 1905, portraying Shostakovich's deeply-felt love for his homeland amidst the scenes of war and destruction.
