Rainer Hersch Orkestra: The New Year’s Eve Bash

Sunday 31 December - 7:00 pm

Rainer Hersch Orkestra

Rainer Hersch (BBC Radio 4 & Classic FM) takes to the stage with his very own orchestra of madcap virtuosos to welcome the New Year with an unforgettable evening of laughter and fab music.

Nothing is safe from the comic maestro as he whips through witty arrangements of the classics. Yes, it’s a classical concert Jim but not as we know it – all bound together with his award-winning stand-up comedy.

‘Whether you are a professor of harmony or couldn’t tell a string quartet from a string vest, this is the funniest concert you’ll ever see’ (Time Out)

Games, tricks and jokes for conductor, orchestra and audience featuring music from (or almost from):

Bach Toccata in D minor
Beethoven Symphony No. 9 (Choral); Symphony No. 5; ‘Emperor’ Piano Concerto; Für Elise
Bizet Carmen Overture
Boccherini Minuet
Dvořák ‘New World’ Symphony
Mozart Eine kleine Nachtmusik
Rossini William Tell Overture
Strauss Pizzicato Polka
Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker Suite
Verdi La traviata
Vivaldi The Four Seasons
and more. Much, much more!
