    OXFORD SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Saturday 16 March 7:30pm Oxford Town Hall

    Vincent d'Indy La Forêt Enchantée
    Delius Concerto for violin and cello
    Saint-Saëns La Muse et le Poète, for violin, cello & orchestra
    Scriabin The Poem of Ecstasy

    Benjamin Nabarro violin
    Gemma Rosefield cello
    Robert Max conductor

    Vincent d'Indy's atmospheric légende-symphonique 'The Enchanted Forest' is inspired by an epic German ballad and owes more to Wagner than his own Gallic roots.

    Delius too was a master of the expressive moment and his Double Concerto is a work of intense lyricsm. Benjamin Nabarro (violin), praised for his concerto performances, and Gemma Rosefield (cello), described as 'a mesmerising musical treasure' also perform the attractive duo by Saint-Saëns.

    Scriabin's The Poem of Ecstasy, first heard in 1908, is diverse and fluid in its mood and lavish in its orchestration. Described by Henry Miller as 'like a bath of ice, cocaine and rainbows' it was broadcast in 1961 by the Soviet authorities to celebrate the launch of the first manned space craft to orbit the earth.

    Tickets: £16, Over 60s £14, Accompanied under 16s FREE
