In a special gala concert, the University of Nottingham Philharmonia and Choir join with guest musicians from Zhejiang Conservatory of Music in China.
The concert opens with Li Huanzhi’s Spring Festival Overture often performed at Chinese New Year festivities.
It follows with Rachmaninov’s The Bells. Based on a Russian poem adapted from Edgar Allan Poe’s famous poem of the same name, the piece evokes bells marking the passage of life.
Finally, there will be a performance of Holst’s The Planets, which ascribes an astrological character to each of the known planets conveying a metaphorical progression of life from the physical (‘bringer of war’, ‘bringer of jollity’) to the mystical.
7:30-9:30pm, Saturday 24 November 2018. Albert Hall, Nottingham.
£13 (£13 concessions, £6 students).
