Come along to Wessex Concert Orchestra's ‘Myths and Legends’ Winter Concert at the Corn Exchange, Devizes, 7.30pm on Saturday 9th December. Hear the mysteries from German and Danish mythology of the striking Lorelei as depicted by Bruch, the evil Elf King according to Schubert, along with the soothing Evening Prayer from Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. We will round off our first half with Elgar’s rousing King Arthur Suite depicting the Celtic legend’s rise and fall. In our second half, we tell the contrasting stories painted by Viktor Hartmann, portrayed in music by Mussorgksy in ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ (orchestrated by Ravel).

There are a great range of different musical styles to hear showcasing different characters from mythology, from fiery German, English and Russian music. We are also joined by soprano Stephanie Harrison for a selection of arias.
