America comes to Bristol with two stunning masterpieces composed in the 1940s. Copland's signature Appalachian Spring, originally conceived as ballet music and later revised as an orchestral suite, is instantly recognisable for its unforgettable Shaker Melody. In the US, Samuel Barber's elegaic, lyrically romantic Violin Concerto is revered. And here, the brilliant, internationally acclaimed Russian violinist Natalia Lomeiko offers a wonderfully persuasive advocacy for the work. Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra complete's the concert with Dvorak's magnificent, intensely Czech, Symphony No. 7 in D Minor. The concert is conducted by William Goodchild.

The concert takes place at 7.30 pm on Saturday 10 March at St. George's Bristol. For full information and ticket booking, please click HERE.
