St George’s Bristol, 7.30pm

Stefan Hofkes  conductor  ·  Eloisa-Fleur Thom  violin

Wagner Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg overture
Beethoven Violin Concerto
Sibelius Symphony No.1

As concert-openers go, they don’t come much more rousing than the overture to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (Wagner’s only comic opera). To follow, Beethoven’s transformative Violin Concerto, sometimes referred to as the ‘Mount Everest’ of Violin Concertos – and to scale the heights of this towering masterpiece, exceptional soloist Eloisa-Fleur Thom makes a welcome return.

To conclude, the first of Sibelius’ symphonic canon – a gripping, haunting and heartwarming glimpse into the soundworld of one of the great symphonists of the twentieth century.

Tickets: £15, £12, £8 (concessions £2 discount), children £1 [+fee]
