Country Folksongs

Friday 17 April 2015 £14.75, £19, £21, £24.25, £29.50* "Kids for a Quid"

Khachaturian was a composer with an incredible gift for melody, and the Violin Concerto is a fun and playful example of this. Its lush, oriental-sounding tunes, high-flying virtuosity and yearning melodic intensity soon appealed to worldwide audiences. Musical elements drawn from the folk songs and dances of Khachaturian’s native Armenia add to the festive intoxication, which are also present in the lusciously evocative Adagio from his ballet Spartacus.

Melvyn Tan

Monday 27 April 2015 £16, £14 concessions incl. BF*. Doors 7pm

A beautifully balanced programme featuring the incomparable keyboard music of JS Bach, a rare opportunity to hear the music of the Russian-based Irish composer John Field, and works by the great giants of the piano, Liszt and Chopin. At the heart of which lies a series of ‘meditations’ inspired by JS Bach’s setting of Bist du bei mir composed by some of Britain’s finest living composers, including Michael Berkeley, Diana Burrell, Peter Maxwell Davies, Jonathan Dove, Thea Musgrave, Tarik O'Regan and Judith Weir.

Sunwook's Rach Three

Friday 01 May 2015 £14.75, £19, £21, £24.25, £29.50* "Kids for a Quid"

The BSO finishes its 2014/15 Portsmouth season with Principal Conductor Kirill Karabits and the BSO Artist-in-Residence Sunwook Kim. Rachmaninov said that he wrote the Third Piano Concerto “for elephants” and with its massive chords, cascading and leaping octaves, high-speed runs, dense counterpoint, and wide-spaced, busily embellished textures, it does demand a pianist with strength, dexterity, control, and stamina - and big hands! But the virtuosity always serves dramatic and expressive ends. A mood of dark, impassioned lyricism prevails throughout which builds with urgent expressiveness before reaching an almost delirious close.

Emma Johnson & John Lenehan

Monday 01 June 2015 £16, £14 concessions incl. BF*. Doors 7pm
