Symphony orchestra will perform popular classics
Join the Plymouth Symphony Orchestra for a romantic feast of Sibelius, Schumann and Rachmaninov in Plymouth's Guildhall on Wednesday at 7.30pm. The concert opens with the rousingly patriotic Finlandia by Sibelius – a work which was intended to reflect the emotions of an exile returning to his native land. The orchestra will then be joined by pianist Mark Cracknell for a performance of the popular Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor. It will conclude with Rachmaninov's best known and much-loved 2nd Symphony, in E Minor. Tickets from Vibes Music in Mayflower Street or on the door.
