Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis
Rossini Concerto for Bassoon and Orchestra
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4
Conductor: Dan Watson
Bassoon: Adam MacKenzie
The orchestra’s first guest conductor of the season is Dan Watson, who featured in the BBC series All Together Now: The Great Orchestra Challenge, as principal conductor of The People’s Orchestra. His programme takes us from the quiet lyricism of the Vaughan Williams through the exciting virtuosity of Rossini’s bassoon concerto to the splendour of Tchaikovsky at the height of his powers in what is regarded as one of the most towering symphonic achievements in the repertoire.
