Welcome to the Chester Philharmonic Orchestra
Our Next Concert
Saturday 18, November 2017 7.30
Our first concert of the new season actually completes last season’s theme. It is the fifth in our “High Five” concert series with a performance of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. This work’s fourth movement, the well known ‘Adagietto’, featured in Visconti’s film “Death in Venice” is arguably Mahler’s best known music. You will also hear music by Schreker and Ponce. Both these early twentieth century contemporaries of Mahler write exquisite and tuneful music and we will be privileged to hear our special guest the international soloist Craig Ogden’s interpretation of Ponce’s Concierto del sul which the composer dedicated to Segovia.
Conductor - Stephen Trelfall
