Brahms Requiem out of the way, we're starting a month of concerts with our Principal Artist John Butt. First up is… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Wow, that came round fast. It only seems like yesterday that we were asking you to help us name a concert in our current season (Lord of the Strings, coming up on 25 Nov and on tour), and here we are doing it all over again – this time for our 2015-2016 season, which gets announced in January.
As you probably know we give each concert a name. Sometimes these are purely descriptive (XXX violinist plays XXX composer – especially good when there’s some alliteration), or sometimes they are more humorous or whimsical, as in Lord of the Strings. From our point of view what we want them to do is to pique the readers interest and get them to read more about the concert.
Every year there is one concert that stumps us a bit and we put it to you to help us out and suggest some titles. Actually there are at least 3 next year which are stumping us, but we’ll just give you one….
So – details of the concert below. Leave your suggestions in the comments section. If there’s one we LOVE we’ll just run with it, but if we get lots and can’t decide we’ll put it to a public vote. If your suggestion wins you’ll earn yourself a couple of seats to a concert of your choice this season (or the concert you’ve named, but it’s over a year away…)
Oh – and importantly this is going to be an important season for us – our 30th anniversary / birthday season at Southbank Centre. So your answers better be good.
The concert is:
Haydn Symphony No 83 in G minor, La Poule
Mozart Concerto for Flute and Harp
Méhul Overture – Chasse Jeune Henri
Beethoven Symphony No 2 in D
Suggestions need to be in by Thursday at 9.30am, so get your thinking caps on now…
