A quiet hymn, a flurry of birdsong, a dance rhythm… and Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony is on its way. If the Ninth Symphony is the most famous, the Eighth has got to be his happiest, and our guest conductor Andrew Gourlay loves it. Dvořák’s playful Wind Serenade launches a concert bursting with melody: to have Benjamin Beilman playing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is just a wonderful bonus!

CBSO+ 16 January, 1pm / 19 January, 5.45pm: 

CBSO Violinist David Gregory is joined by Luke Russell (flute) and Lorenzo Meseguer (cello) to talk us through the musical landscape of Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony.
