Listen, laugh, learn and enjoy
The ebullient music educator/conductor Richard Gill joins the orchestra again to ‘unwrap’ three great orchestral works and reveal what makes them so special.
Part concert, part interactive talk, each Unwrap the Music is guaranteed to take your musical appreciation to the next level. This entertaining event is great for all ages whether you are a seasoned concertgoer or new to orchestral music.
Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony opens with a palpable sense of foreboding. But then, with the composer’s typical audacity, it erupts into some of the most vigorously irrepressible music he ever wrote. Life-affirming and almost laugh-out-loud buoyant, it’s a perfect foil for the similarly exuberant Richard Gill.
