Szymanowski & Berlioz
St Cyprian's Church, Glentworth Street, London, NW1 6AX

The final concert of our 2023-2024 season includes some important unfinished business. We originally planned to perform Szymanowski's Violin Concerto No. 2 in June 2020, but of course we were forced to cancel that concert, and we've been trying to reschedule it ever since. We're delighted that we'll finally be able to perform this piece with Fenella Humphreys, one of the UK's best-known violinists, who we've had the pleasure of performing with several times in the past.

The concert opens with Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel's Overture in C. Like many of her works, the overture was not published in her lifetime and was long neglected, but the composer's only work for orchestra alone has now been rediscovered and is highly regarded. The second half of the concert features Berlioz's hugely popular Symphonie Fantastique, which portrays the hallucinations of a gifted artist who has poisoned himself with opium. The highly evocative movements include a ball, a rural scene in the fields, a march to the scaffold and dreams of a witches' sabbath. Join us to explore the extremities of the emotional spectrum in a dramatic musical finale to our season.

Advance tickets for this concert are available now via the link to the left, and remaining tickets will be available on the door on the night. Directions to St Cyprian's Church can be found on our Venues page.

We are now able to take card payments on the night (as well as payments in cash), but advance booking is recommended!
