Hitchin Symphony Orchestra Spring Concert

St Mary’s Church, Churchyard, Hitchin, SG5 1HP

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the haunting beauty and power of Rachmaninov’s music. On Saturday 11 May, Hitchin Symphony Orchestra will present two of the composer’s masterpieces: Isle of the Dead and Symphony No. 2 in E minor. Isle of the Dead is a symphonic poem that evokes the journey of a soul to the afterlife, based on a painting by Arnold Böcklin. Symphony No. 2 is a lush and romantic work, full of lyrical themes and dramatic contrasts. Both pieces showcase Rachmaninov’s skill as an orchestrator and his expressive use of the musical language.

Tickets £12 in advance, £15 on the door, under 16s free (accompanied.) Available online or from Hitchin Information.
