A classical music programme to stir the senses

This year Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival offers a vast array of choral and orchestral performances over the two weeks, Friday 26th September to Friday 12th October.

A premiere for the Festival, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s controversial music theatre-work Vesalii Icones (Thu 2nd Oct) is brought to life by Pavilion Dance and BSO new music ensemble Kokoro.

Recently embarking on a brilliantly well received tour of Australia, Fieri Consort (Fri 3rd Oct) bring their evocative vocal sound to St Peter’s Church. See their blog about their adventures here.

Hear the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra conductor, pictured above, Kirill Karabits in Conversation (Thu 2nd Oct) and see him in action at the BSO Piano Virtuoso (Sat 4th Oct).

Arts Bournemouth Associate Artist Jack Maguire performs The Trench Composers (Mon 6th Oct) – a selection of stirring and moving works from the First World War.

Exquisite Spanish guitar accompanies the rousing rhythms and dynamic footwork of Jaleo Flamenco (Thu 9th Oct). World class guitarist Carlos Bonell (Thu 9th Oct) premieres Bournemouth composer Paul Coles new work, Cacacha.

From the beautiful to the challenging, Arts by the Sea brings classical music ‘on the edge’.
