International Classical Season 2013/14
Colston Hall’s renowned International Classical Season has long been a highlight of the Bristol music calendar. Our 2013/14 season presents a world-class line up of acclaimed soloists, iconic conductors and inspirational music that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
This year we celebrate the power of the symphony with our special Symphony Project - a series of unique concerts dedicated to the masters of the form and performed by the leading orchestras of their home nations. Further to the main concerts, we invite you to the accompanying chamber concerts in our intimate Hall 2 which include an insightful talk from Radio 3 presenter Stephen Johnson and delve deeper into the works of each composer.
To celebrate this year’s Benjamin Britten Centenary, we are hosting a special weekend dedicated to his music, including a very special performance of the powerful and wonderfully moving War Requiem, performed by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Bristol Choral Society. We also wish happy birthday to Wagner, who would be 200 this year, with a night of pulse-racing, operatic showstoppers courtesy of the BSO.
The big-hitting repertoire continues with a sparkling production of La Bohème including romantic favourites like They Call Me Mimi and Muzetta’s Waltz, and a special performance of Janáček’s stirring Glagolitic Mass, featuring a choir of over 200 voices and the world-renowned Philharmonia Orchestra.
2013/14 sees performances by star soloists and iconic conductors from across the world. The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra brings a night of Russian magic to the Hall with Conductor Laureate Andrew Litton and world-renowned pianist Barry Douglas, plus pianist Stephen Hough returns with the orchestra to give a masterclass in Liszt’s Piano Concerto.
