Kensington Symphony Orchestra

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Uncover vivid works by Korngold, Gershwin and Ravel at a performance by Kensington Symphony Orchestra.

Korngold used the powerful fanfare-like main theme of Kings Row, starring Ronald Reagan, as the basis for the rest of his 1941 film score.

In his Romantic-style Piano Concerto, Gershwin magnificently combines the popular rhythms of American jazz with the deep yearning of the blues and Yiddish music.

Concluding the evening is a tone poem in all but name, Ravel's symphonic Daphnis et Chloé. The ballet is the composer's masterwork, vividly depicting the two lovers and the gang of pirates who abduct the heroine.

Established classics, neglected masterpieces and works by today’s leading composers are hallmarks of KSO’s repertoire, performed with a skill and panache that has garnered praise from all quarters.
