Stravinsky

The Rite of Spring

The first ever chance to hear one of Berlioz' most personal and heartfelt works played on the astonishing instrument which inspired the work. Made by one of London's finest luthiers Barak Norman, the gran viola is mid way between viola and cello and has a rich, resonant and powerful lower register unlike any other viola. It has been in a private collection for decades but has now resurfaced, and the Royal Orchestral Society is thrilled to be able to present the first London performance of the Berlioz on this instrument with one of the UK's leading players, Peter Sheppard Skaerved.

Stravinsky's masterpiece the The Rite of Spring provides a thrilling conclusion to the concert.
