Concert Information

Bringing together music from both sides of the Atlantic, BBC Concert Orchestra tips its hat to Canada in a Commonwealth celebration at Watford Colosseum.

The vast serenity of the North American countryside forms the backdrop of Ivor Novello Award-winning Robert Farnon’s Lake of the Woods. Benjamin Britten chooses the music of Canada as his inspiration for the folk-flavoured Canadian Carnival, which includes the popular 'Alouette'. Back on British soil, we bring you an epic landmark of English composition; the first symphony from William Walton.

Award-winning Canadian composer Howard Shore,best known for The Lord of the Rings film scores, forms the centrepiece with his cello concerto Mythic Gardens. Beautiful and dramatic, taking us on a virtual tour of Italy, Sophie Shao performs this UK premiere.
