Fatal fantasies and a dance with the devil

Trumpeter Julius Scholz (pictured) joins forces with us for our autumn concert on Saturday 12th November at 7.30pm at the Victoria Rooms, Bristol. The programme has a real Halloween flavour to it, featuring witches, spirits, Satan, obsessive unrequited love and nightmarish hallucinations with Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique and Mussorgsky Night on a Bare Mountain. We're also offering a rare opportunity to hear the Arutunian Trumpet Concerto, a beautiful, flamboyant Russian piece referencing folk music and dance.

Mark Gateshill, our conductor says, “the concert takes us through the spectral, subterranean world of Mussorgsky's 'Night On Bare Mountain'. We are very much looking forward to being joined by the young German trumpet player Julius Scholz for what will be a fantastic performance of Arutunian's Trumpet Concerto. The main work is Berlioz's infamous 'Symphonie Fantastique', a tale of lost love and lust, a dream world and tragedy; ending with a wild witches’ dance!”

Tickets are on sale now from Opus 13, Bristol’s leading music shop, costing £15, concessions £12, students £5, under 16s £1. Pop in at 14 St Michael's Hill, Bristol BS2 8DT or phone them on 0117 923 0164. You can also book online at www.opus13.co.uk.

Hoping to see you on the night.
