New Years Eve Viennese Concert

Stephen Bell Guest Conductor

The end of year celebrations just would not be the same without the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestras traditional Viennese Concert, hosted for the fifth time at Brighton Dome by audience favourite Stephen Bell. In addition to familiar classics such as the Blue Danube, Tritsch Tratsch Polka and Radetzky March the afternoon will include more colourful orchestral evocations of the Dance, virtuosic showpieces and glittering operetta to get your celebrations off to a rousing start.

Rob Clarke / Kate Shipway Pianos


Prelude and Triumphal March

from Aida


Concerto for Two Pianos


Symphony No. 3

With Verdis Prelude and Triumphal March from his grand opera Aida we celebrate for the second time this season the bicentenary of his birth. Poulencs Concerto for Two Pianos featured in the recent Triple Ballet Bill at Covent Garden. Our two soloists are looking forward to performing in the limelight on stage rather than hidden in the orchestra pit of the Royal Opera House. Saint-Sanss best loved symphony and perennial Brighton favourite shows off the grand organ at Brighton Dome and concludes this traditional format concert.

Symphony No. 98


Concerto for Violin and Oboe


Symphony No. 39

Haydns Symphony No. 98 was written during his extended stay in London and is one of the set of so-called London Symphonies which took the capital by storm following its first performance. Barry Wordsworth is very pleased to have the opportunity to explore another example of Haydn's great symphonic output. We continue our season of unusual double concertos with Bachs Concerto for Violin and Oboe. This is an exciting opportunity to hear one of his rarely performed works with soloists drawn from within the ranks of our orchestra. The powerful Symphony No. 39 continues our exploration of Mozarts later works.
