Programme Note

The dazzling and sparkling Scheherazade (Rimsky-Korsakov's orchestral tour de force depicting the Arabian tales of One Thousand and One Nights) headlines this concert, alongside Debussy's gorgeous and sensual musical vision of another literary work: Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune (Afternoon of a Faun). 
The jazz-influenced 4th Piano Concerto by Rachmaninov is complemented by two well-known pieces by Shostakovich: his orchestration of Tahiti Trot (Tea for Two) and - a work which found fame in Stanley Kubrick's last film Eyes Wide Shut - Waltz No.2 commonly (but erroneously) known as from Jazz Suite No.2, but actually from the Suite for Variety Stage Orchestra

There will be a retiring collection in aid of the British Red Cross


Bristol Concert Orchestra: Scheherazade, Rachmaninov Piano Concerto 4, Shostakovich & Debussy
