The Orchestra of the City makes its Bristol debut this Summer with Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No.2. An instrumental tour de force, it flits between mischievous wit and majestic splendour, through the heart-wrenching beauty of its slow movement, to a blistering rhythmic finale.

Alongside is Mendelssohn’s brooding Scottish Symphony, inspired by a twilight walk around the chapel ruins at Edinburgh’s Holyrood Palace. Since its first concert in 2003, the Orchestra of the City has given over 60 performances including world premieres and performances alongside acclaimed international soloists across London and the UK.

This is a Clifton International Festival of Music event at Clifton Cathedral, Clifton Park, BS8 3BX
