      EVENT DETAILS
      Abergavenny Symphony Orchestra

      Josef Suk's Scherzo Fantastique is all too infrequently played, but it's lively and quirky and a brilliant opener for a concert.

      Sibelius's 7th Symphony is sometimes said to be his finest work. Written as a single unified movement, it encompasses a wide range of expression through continuosly changing tempo and texture.

      Berlioz wrote Harold in Italy initially at the request of the virtuoso violinist Niccolo Paganini who had just acquired a Stradivarius viola but had no suitable music to play on it. Written in the style of a symphony with 4 distinct movements, it uses the solo viola to represent the central character of Harold as he journeys through a series of poetic memories.

      Cost: £10 on the door, £8.50 in advance; students and children free
