BBC National Orchestra of Wales CANCELLED

Due to an unforeseen change in scheduling at the BBC, the concert on Wednesday 1 June with BBC National Orchestra of Wales will no longer take place. Ticket buyers should contact Colston Hall Box Office on 0844 887 1500 or boxoffice@colstonhall.org to arrange a refund. We are sorry for any disappointment this may have caused.

A repertoire of romantic music, charmed to life by the supple playing of BBC NOW makes for a stirring concert whose atmosphere will be bottled and broadcast by BBC Radio 3.

Conductor Alexandre Bloch

There’ll be a hearty welcome in BS1 as the BBC National Orchestra of Wales returns to the Hall after last season’s exhilarating contribution to the BBC’s weeklong Brahms Experience in Bristol.

Whether coupling Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony with an exuberant orchestral celebration by Composer in- Residence B Tommy Andersson, or supplying the soundtrack to Doctor Who, BBC NOW is nothing if not versatile. Proms regulars, and BBC Cardiff Singer of the World mainstays, Wales’ flagship orchestra performs a programme of 19th century romantic music which will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.

With BBC NOW  you are certainly in capable hands – as Bachtrack said of the orchestra last year: “the BBC NOW could bend to whatever the music demanded of them, whether that was jollity, tragedy or tranquillity.”

Promoted by St George’s Bristol in conjunction with Bristol Music Trust.
