Programme Note

For the first time ever, the NSO is on tour with one fantastic concert as part of the Clifton International Festival at Clifton Cathedral in Bristol. We will be performing Doreen Carwithen’s The Men of Sherwood Forest Overture, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy, and (joined by virtuoso pianist Arta Arnicane) the first William Alwyn Piano Concerto and Rachmaninoff’s ever popular Second Piano Concerto. The concert is on the 16th of November at 7:45 pm at Clifton Cathedral, Bristol. Please note - this concert is not part of the orchestra's 2019/20 season and therefore Friends’ discounts do not apply. Funded in part by the generosity of the William Alwyn Foundation.
