DCO's ninth concert opens with the Prelude to Wagner's opera Parsifal - a superb demonstration of the composer's gift for melody and rich harmony.

We then give the first performance of a work orchestrated for DCO by Ukrainian composer Anna Kuzina-Rozhdestvenskaya.

Wonderfully depictive orchestration is exemplified by the rarely-heard seascape A Legend of the Skerries by Swedish composer Hugo Alfvén, and by Arnold Bax's vivid depiction of the Cornwall coast near Tintagel.

Highlights from Tchaikovsky's immortal ballet Sleeping Beauty abound, with tunes you'll go home humming.
