Scottish born conductor Gary Walker directs the Trinity Laban Symphony Orchestra in a programme based around water and the sea, in keeping with A song for all ships, all seas, the autumn theme linking a few concerts within our Facaulty of Music programme this term.
Frank Bridge’s orchestral suite The Sea aptly opens the concert, followed by Toru Takemitsu’s Riverrun, one of many pieces in the composer’s output reflecting his fascination with water. Gorgeous melodies and a vast, impreccably employed palette of orchestral colours have made Scheherazade one of Rimsky-Korsakov’s most popular works. A new composition by Trinity Laban student Oliver Muxworthy, completes the programme.
