Brahms Symphony no 1, Dvořák Cello Concerto Saturday 15th March 2014, The Centre, Slough
Award-winning cellist Batholomew LaFollette joins us to play one of the two most popular cello concertos in the world. Dvořák's beautiful Cello Concerto was written during the composer's American period and tells a poignant story of homesickness and concern for an ailing friend. Also in the programme is Brahms' Symphony No 1, described as the best first symphony ever written and Borodin's famous Price Igor overture. All three pieces are never out of the Classic FM Hall of Fame. CLICK HERE for more information and to buy tickets.
Slough Philharmonic has been rooted in the community for more than 70 years from its visionary war-time birth to its current dynamic involvement with the town’s schools and music-lovers throughout the area. The chorus and orchestra were founded in 1941 by SEGRO (then Slough Estates Ltd) which despite the outbreak of World War Two in 1939 pursued a far-sighted policy enabling people to enjoy artistic, cultural and sporting activities locally. Slough Phil is still generously supported by SEGRO plc. Its twin structure of orchestra and chorus is its strength, allowing members to perform a hugely-varied repertoire (see our concerts page) from the great symphonies, showpiece concertos and choral works to pop classics, musicals, jazz and opera.
