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.
Tongue firmly in cheek, Brahms told his friends he’d composed ‘a little piano concerto with a teeny-weeny wisp of a scherzo’. That’s a lie. It’s huge, with an enormous solo part and some wonderful solos for horn and cello. Richard Gill explores how Brahms controls this massive structure.
