The Orchestra visits one of Britain's finest medieval cathedrals with a bespoke programme exploring lust and tragedy, and evoking the Middle Eastern theme at the heart of this year's Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival.
Tchaikovsky’s enchanting fantasy-overture Romeo and Juliet and Dvorak’s ever-popular Cello Concerto prepare us for an exotic journey across the raging seas and through the bustling bazaars of Scheherazade, Rimsky-Korsakov’s colourful musical depiction of the Arabian Nights, perhaps the composer's best-known and best-loved work and one in which he effortlessly demonstrates his brilliant mastery of orchestration.
