BBC National Orchestra Of Wales

BBC National Orchestra Of Wales


If you’ve never been to a classical, orchestral concert before, and are perhaps nervous about giving it a go, this is the one for you! Popular BBC broadcaster Lynn Bowles presents this fantastically varied and colourful experience - introducing each piece of music, the stories they tell and what to listen out for.

Hearing the 80-strong BBC National Orchestra of Wales at full throttle in music from Stravinsky’s ballet The Firebird or Star Wars will pin you to the back of your seat, but in pieces like Vaughan Williams’ exquisite The Lark Ascending or John Williams’ heart-breaking main theme from Schindler’s List, you’ll also experience the luscious warmth and delicacy that an orchestra’s colour palette can paint. And talking of painting – children’s author and illustrator James Mayhew (the Katie and Ella Bella Ballerina books) will be creating pictures in the moment, during the works by Britten and Stravinsky, all projected onto a big screen.

Britten: Young Person's guide to the Orchestra
Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending
Stravinsky: The Firebird
Sibelius: The Swan of Tuonela
Williams: Music from Star Wars, Schindler's List, Jaws and Harry Potter
