    Mahler's 9th Symphony and Beethoven's Romances 1 and 2
    Bristol Concert Orchestra, Eloisa-Fleur Thom, Stefan Hofkes
    St George's Bristol Bristol BS1 5RR
    United Kingdom

    Bristol Concert Orchestra (conductor Stefan Hofkes) welcomes exciting young violinist Eloisa-Fleur Thom to play Beethoven’s lyrical Romances for violin and orchestra. The main work of the concert - Mahler’s ninth symphony - was described by Leonard Bernstein as “the ultimate farewell” – to passion and human love; to country life and urban society; and to life itself. Yet this extraordinary and immense work remains a defiant affirmation of life.
