at St John's Hall, Penzance
Penzance Orchestral Society’s autumn concert presents an all-Czech programme of romantic music perfect for season of whirling leaves and cosy log fires.
This begins with Smetana’s Vltava, his tone poem which evokes in wonderful detail the journey of his country’s great river, from its gently bubbling source in the uplands, via surging rapids and through a woodland hunting scene to a magnificent climax as the river enters Prague.
Next the society will be joined by the young Finnish violinist Abel Puustinen (pictured) for Dvorak’s much loved violin concerto. Then there’ll be more Dvorak in the concert’s second half, in the shape of his marvellous sixth symphony.
We do hope you can join us. Don’t forget to bring along any young music lovers in your family as accompanied under-16s are admitted free!
