Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. Overture, from Ruslan and Lyudmila - Mikhail Glinka
  2. The Rock Op 7 - Sergey Rachmaninov
  3. Peer Gynt Suite No 1 Op 46 - Edvard Grieg
  4. Symphony No 5 in E flat Op 82 - Jean Sibelius

Glinka’s fizzing, exuberant overture to his opera captures the essence of Pushkin’s magical poem, rooted in Russian fairy tales.

The twenty year old Rachmaninov’s expressive tone poem The Rock won the enthusiastic admiration of Tchaikovsky and already shows many of the composer’s qualities.

The perennial freshness of Grieg’s much-loved music to Peer Gynt never fails to make an impact in concert.

Sibelius’s fifth and most well known symphony grows from the seed of its tiny opening figure to the most outwardly heroic of his seven works in the form. The final majestic brass theme was inspired by a flight of swans the awe-struck composer saw wheeling over his house in the countryside.

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment is Anvil Arts’ Orchestra in Association.
