The March concert opens with the Syrian-influenced Bacchanal by James Maunders (from our composers competition). This is followed by Tippett's joyful Concerto for Double String  Orchestra, his most popular work, with hints of Bartók, folk idioms and the blues. Prokofiev's Fifth Symphony concludes. (The composer: ‘a hymn to Man's noble spirit – it filled my soul.’)
