Ives The Unanswered Question
Elgar Serenade for Strings
Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis
Holst The Planets

Conductor Bramwell Tovey

The BSO returns to Salisbury with works that bring emotions to life unlike any others in the repertoire. Elgar’s and Vaughan Williams’ heart-felt pieces for string orchestra speak to the spirit; while Holst’s grand Planets suite travels through the galaxy from threatening boisterous Mars to quick and powerful Mercury and beautifully eerie Venus.

Running Time: Approx 1 hour 50 mins (including interval)

Scala Radio is a brand-new entertainment radio station that breaks the mould of classical music in the UK, fronted by presenters Simon Mayo, Angellica Bell, Mark Kermode, Chris Rogers, William Orbit and musical innovator Goldie.Playing familiar masters from Mozart and Holst to surprising new works from living composers like Karl Jenkins, Rebecca Dale and Thom Yorke, film scores and musicals, along with performances by bright young artists like Alexis Ffrench, Jess Gillam and Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Scala Radio is an exciting discovery of classical music for modern life, presented with an informal ‘come as you are’ attitude.
