A TRIO of masterpieces inspired by greatness is set to be performed at Weymouth Pavilion on Thursday, September 12.

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO) will play three pieces by two of the best-known composers in classical music, in a concert entitled Divine Inspiration.

Schubert's Overture in D will be followed by two of Beethoven's compositions, his Violin Concerto and his Symphony No 4.

Schubert's Italian influences are evident in his Overture in D, drawing from the rapid rise in popularity of Rossini in Vienna during that time. Its majestic and visionary depictions of Italy's gorgeous landscapes are matched in evocative beauty by the piece that follows: Beethoven's only violin concerto was used to demonstrate the intense skill needed to play the instrument at a high level, and will be performed by the award-winning violinist, Daniel Auner.

The concert will conclude with Beethoven's Symphony No 4, his final complete symphony.

Conducting Divine Inspiration will be Marta Gardolinska, the BSO's Young Conductor in Association. The position seeks to offer emerging conductors the invaluable experience of working with a professional symphony orchestra, and the award-winning Polish conductor has been wowing audiences since she joined the BSO in September 2018. Marta has previously led ensembles all over the globe, from her home country of Poland to Italy and Hong Kong.

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1893 and works to give people across the south and south-west the opportunity to experience high quality music. The BSO conducts more than 140 performances each year, with full symphonic concerts in Poole, Bournemouth, Exeter, Bristol, Portsmouth, Basingstoke, Cheltenham, Salisbury and beyond.

The BSO also runs a Participate programme, offering a variety of activities across the region including workshops in schools and performances in care homes. Events take place in more than 200 venues, encouraging a myriad of communities to get involved regardless of circumstance.

As a registered charity, the BSO relies on the support of companies and individuals, as well as income earned from ticket sales, commercial activity and public funding grants.

The BSO is also Classic FM's Orchestra in the South of England, and the two work together to extend their shared passion for music across the region. The Orchestra's principal broadcast parter is BBC Radio 3.

The concert at Weymouth Pavilion begins at 7.30pm. Tickets range in price from £14 to £27, and are available to purchase by visiting the pavilion website or contacting the box office.
