Oxford Symphony Orchestra
Korngold Violin Concerto & Bruckner: Symphony no.7. Andrew Haveron violin. Robert Max conductor.
Erich Korngold's lyrical and romantic violin concerto draws on the music of his Viennese roots as well as his work as a respected Hollywood film composer. Andrew Haveron who plays the solo violin part is one of the most sought after violinists in the UK. He is highly regarded as a chamber musician, as an orchestral leader and soloist.Bruckner's symphonies have a gravitas and a structure which have led them to be described as 'cathedrals in sound'. His Symphony no.7 is deservedly the most popular of his orchestral works. Its emotional centrepiece is the slow movement which Bruckner wrote as a tribute to Wagner.
Tickets: £15, Over 60s £12, Accompanied under 16s FREE. Students aged 16-25 and those in receipt of benefits £5. Book online or by phone 01865 305305 at Tickets Oxford.

20 July 2013
The Spooky Men's Chorale plus Oxford Community Choir Vox Steady and Lucy Wise
Wave goodbye to choirs as you know them. This one is a macho juggernaut - zany, black-clad, big as a behemoth and show-stoppingly good. Sounding as sacred as a high church choir one minute; wickedly off the wall the next.
Following their triumphant UK tours in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2011 The Spooky Men's Chorale will leave their native New South Wales to embark on their fourth tour of England, Scotland and Wales when they will regale Spooky veterans and virgins alike with rib-tickling (sometimes heart-rending) original compositions and eloquent arrangements by the inspired antipodean choral impresario, Stephen Taberner.
Tickets £17. Available online or by phone 01235 555670.
