Vasily Petrenko conductor
Julian Bliss clarinet

Enjoy this concert in the comfort of your home, as we bring the Orchestra to your living room with an innovative online experience.

Arensky was so taken by the melody of Tchaikovsky’s song ‘Legend’ that he spun seven variations from it as a tribute to the composer. In the finale of his second clarinet concerto, Carl Maria von Weber took the inflections of the Polonaise dance to weave virtuosic runs and jumps into the solo clarinet line. But the rest of the concerto sparkles with brilliance too and Julian Bliss will make it sing and dance effortlessly.

This concert has been extended and will be available until midnight on Sunday 28 February 2021.

We’ve been thrilled with the positive feedback on these concerts:

The 4* Times review praised "a performance of dancing colours, crisp beauty and punch… Petrenko’s forces played with heart, soul and all the other necessaries in a performance strong enough to overwhelm even a home listener alone with a laptop."

The Guardian remarked on the concert’s “maximum impact for a bold start to virtual season”

Audiences commented:

“The sound quality was excellent and the programme was excellent.”
