The third concert in the ‘Time and Place’ series circles the globe, exploring the ways in which composers from very different eras and musical environments express their relationships with the places which inspire them. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos are among the finest compositions of the baroque era, while Mendelssohn was unbelievably only 14 when he composed his brilliant 9th String Symphony, inspired by a much-enjoyed family visit to Lucerne and the Bernese Oberland. Wales’ own John Metcalf and the Japanese Toru Takemitsu offer contrasting, but equally personal, expressions of ‘Place’ in a programme which will appeal to anyone who loves the infinite variety of music.
