The 2018/19 season is the Brent Symphony Orchestra’s 108th year. We aspire to perform the finest orchestral music, bringing together pieces you may well have heard of, together with something new. Recent concerts have featured symphonies by Elgar, Bruckner, Mahler, Nielsen and Vaughan Williams; concertos by Sibelius and Strauss and also work by Bernstein, Mozart, Ravel and Stravinsky.
We have had four fantastic concerts lined up for the year and we have included some lesser known works in our programmes amongst the audience favourites.
Our first concert has a big, romantic violin concerto by the Polish composer Karłowicz and we are delighted to welcome back the outstanding violinist, Fenella Humphreys who recently won the BBC Music Magazine 2018 Instrumental Award. The concert closes with the ever popular second symphony by Rachmaninov. including music by Rachmaninov.
