Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra
Conductor Michael Lloyd
Mendelssohn Overture: The Hebrides
Enescu Decet for wind instruments
Elgar Serenade for strings
Mendelssohn Symphony No.4: 'Italian'
The journey begins with an evocation of the stormy west coast of Scotland, before travelling to Romania for a seldom-heard wind decet. Then to England for a lilting serenade, and the tour ends with a high-spirited symphony inspired by Italy.
Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra is one of Britain’s leading non-professional symphony orchestras. BPO draws its members from throughout the West Midlands, and aims to achieve the highest standards of performance for its core repertoire: the large orchestral works from the early 19th century to the present day.
BPO has presented major works by Bartók, Mahler, Shostakovich and Stravinsky, as well as a concert performance in October 2019 of Wagner’s Das Rheingold. In association with Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, the orchestra stages the BPO Concerto Prize to recognise and encourage talented soloists.
