Martin Romberg -The Tales of Taliesin (UK première)
Ravel -Ma Mère L'Oye
Tchaikovsky -The Sleeping Beauty Suite

Music and stories have always been inextricably linked. Tonight we invoke those spirits by looking at three orchestral favourites and a UK première. We are very proud to be introducing the music of the Norwegian composer Martin Romberg to the UK. We welcome the internationally respected soloist, Lara James, to perform Romberg's symphonic poem for alto saxophone and large orchestra, The Tales of Taliesen. The work is based on the poems of the renowned Brythonic poet, Taliesin. Maurice Ravel composed Ma Mère L'Oye as a suite of five pieces for piano duet. Ravel then orchestrated the suite and it is one of his most exquisite creations. We open and close our concert with two of Tchaikovsky's most popular works: Marche Slave and Sleeping Beauty. We will perform the popular suite from Sleeping Beauty, which contains the wonderful melodies that we all love.

Concert starts at 7.15pm
