The Ghosts of War

Oxford Town Hall

It's one of the strangest stories in the history of music: could Robert Schumann's lost violin concerto really have been discovered by means of a seance nearly 100 years after the composer's death? Novelist and music journalist Jessica Duchen picks up the story as we hear Schumann's rich and unusual concerto courtesy of Alena Baeva, making her debut with the Orchestra. Before that comes an equally heartfelt elegy by Frederick Septimus Kelly, a Balliol graduate killed in the Great War with his own connection to the Schumann seance. And to finish, one of the great orchestral showpieces of the twentieth century: Bartok's spicy and spectacular Concerto for Orchestra. Time:7.30pm. More information and tickets here.
