European Classics

Some of the best loved works from the repertoire feature in Firebird’s wonderful summer concert on Tuesday 14 June at St George’s Hanover Square…

Ravel Tombeau de Couperin

Ravel’s homage to Couperin is based on a traditional Baroque suite. Each movement is dedicated to the memory of a friend of the composer who died in WWI.

Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 26

Virtuoso violinist, Yury Revich returns to perform one of the world’s most popular concertos. Bruch composed two more concertos after this but none equalled the popularity of his first.

Schubert Symphony No. 1 in D. 82

Schubert’s youthful first symphony was written when he was just 16, this is an impressive piece of orchestral music for both its time and size, clearly inspired by the later symphonies of Haydn.

Yury Revich Prelude

In addition, we are delighted to also be performing Prelude, a work by Yury Revich himself which he recently performed at the World Expo in Dubai.

George Jackson returns to conduct the Orchestra for this thrilling concert of European Classics.
