SOAK up the sound of Vienna with a special performance when the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra play a concert at Weymouth Pavilion.

Under BSO Leverhulme Young Conductor in Association Victor Aviat, the orchestra will perform a Viennese flavoured programme on Thursday, September 14.

The concert will include works by Mozart and Beethoven, members of the so-called First Viennese School of composers.

The centrepiece of the concert will be a performance of Brahms’ Violin Concerto by virtuosic violinist Chloë Hanslip.

Chloë has established herself as an artist of distinction on the international stage, having performed with such distinguished orchestras as the Royal Philharmonic, Moscow State Symphony and Auckland Philharmonia, and worked with respected conductors including Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Andrew Davis and Paavo Järvi.

She has an established relationship with the BSO, having recorded Jen? Hubay’s Violin Concertos with the Orchestra in 2009 and performed as soloist on several occasions, including two programmes in the 2016-17 Concert Season where she performed violin concertos by Tchaikovsky and Mozart, as well as Massenet’s Meditation from Thaïs.

The orchestra is delighted to welcome her back to perform the Brahms Concerto with them.

The concert opens with a work by a composer synonymous with the city, Mozart’s sparkling Overture from his comedic opera, The Marriage of Figaro.

Beethoven’s Symphony No.3 ‘Eroica’ will also be performed. Composed in 1803, this revolutionary symphony is as famous for the story surrounding its name as it is for its sheer scope and size.

Beethoven had long been an admirer of Napoleon and decided to dedicate a work to him, capturing the heroic nature of his idol; however when news reached the composer that Napoleon had declared himself Emperor of France, Beethoven was so furious that he tore the title page from the manuscript and re-named it the Eroica Symphony, or the ‘Heroic Symphony.’
