Next main concert

Orchestral Concert


Tonbridge School Chapel


Conductor: Matthew Willis


COPLAND: Fanfare for the common man

BARBER: Adagio

SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony No 7

 

Copland wrote Fanfare for the Common Man in response to the US entry into the Second World War, while Barber’s Adagio, so full of pathos and passion, was voted by BBC’s Today programme listeners as ‘the saddest classical work ever’.


It is Shostakovich who offers us a glimpse into the real horrors of war with his Symphony No. 7 in C major, entitled Leningrad. A symbol of resistance to the totalitarianism of the Nazi invasion, it serves as a memorial to the more than 25 million people who died in Russia in World War Two.


Tickets: £16 Adults, £15 Concessions over 60,
