Pre-concert talk hosted by John Florance at 2pm

Join the Bardi and immerse yourself in familiar but other-worldly sounds and let your imagination run riot. The programme opens with mischievous music from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (remember Disney’s immortal ‘Fantasia’ character?) followed by the Suite from Poulenc’s tuneful and playful ballet Les Biches. The second half features Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade portraying tales of the Arabian Nights alongside the timeless love story of the young Prince and Princess. Pure escapism for an early spring afternoon.
