Forest Philharmonic plays Suk, Khachaturian and Prokofiev
KHACHATURIAN Flute Concerto
PROKOFIEV Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2
Flute: Chris Wyatt
We conclude the season with three early 20th Century pieces from Eastern Europe and beyond – Czech composer Josef Suk’s 1902 Scherzo Fantastique, by turns energetic and lyrical; Armenian Khachaturian’s 1940 Violin Concerto in a spectacular transcription for Flute, with our very own flute virtuoso Chris Wyatt as soloist; and Prokofiev’s always-appealing take on Shakespeare’s tragic Romeo and Juliet from 1935.
There will be a retiring collection in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
The event will adhere to UK government guidance around Covid in place at the time of the concert. We will offer a full refund if the event is unable to take place due to increased Covid restrictions.
