The Bard & The Bird



Over the years BPO has worked with Chen Yang to tick off many of our mutual ‘bucket list’ musical works. We are pleased to have Chen conduct us again in 2019 as we tick off another item: Stravinsky’s brilliant Firebird Suite.

Sibelius’ brooding tone poem The Bard provides a contrast to the infectious backwards dance rhythms of Copland’s suite from Rodeo with its famous Hoedown. This concert also features the winner of our 2019 Concerto Competition which this year is themed ‘String Classics’ and will see the performance of a famous classical-era string concerto.


Conductor: Chen Yang

Soloist: Winner of 2019 Concerto Competition

Aaron Copland | Four Dance Episodes from ‘Rodeo’
Concerto TBC
