The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra returns to Bexhill with a programme of glorious orchestral classics, opening with Mozart’s energetic Overture to The Marriage of Figaro which gives a foretaste of the comical opera that it introduces.

Multi-award-winning violinist Mayumi Kanagawa takes to the stage to perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. Described by legendary violinist Joseph Joachim as ‘the heart’s jewel’, this magnificent concerto is rightly considered one of the greatest of the violin repertoire, from its unusual opening with the soloist entering first, through to its sparkling Allegro finale.

The evening concludes with Beethoven’s Symphony No 6, ‘Pastoral’. Conductor Brian Wright leads the nation’s favourite orchestra through in this characterful work, from depictions of country folk dancing with frolicsome melodies, to the start of the rainfall and the thrill of the storm, returning safely back to calm in the uplifting final movement.
