BSO Concert Hall


Mozart - Requiem
Tchakovsky - Waltz & Polonaise from Eugene Onegin
Borodin - Polotsvian Dances
Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture

Conductor - Gavin Carr
Bournemouth Symphony Chorus

Sketched from his death-bed whilst tortured by the premonition of his own demise, Mozart's Requiem, though incomplete, is haunting and deeply emotional. The Waltz and Polonaise is from Tchaikovsky’s most famous opera, Eugene Onegin, and is a lively yet moving excerpt from the story of Onegin and Tatyana. It is surely the irresistable, romantic melodies of yearning and love for one's country that make Polovetsian Dances Borodin's most popular work. The instantly recognisable 1812 Overture stirs with a Russian hymn, finally climaxing with a glorious eruption of chorus, bells and cannonfire.

The role of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Benevolent Fund is to provide financial assistance to members of the BSO who have developed a medical condition or an injury that impairs their ability to perform their duties, or threatens to prematurely end their playing careers. Income for the Fund is raised from our annual concert for which the musicians, ancillary staff, conductors and soloists all donate their services, and also from donations and bequests.

The vast majority of members have never needed to request assistance from the OBF, but the Fund has provided an important safety net for the members that have fallen on difficult times, and remains integral to the efficient running of the BSO.
