Conductor Robert Guy

To misquote a very famous advertising slogan, happiness is a composer called Bach. Travel back in time with us, from the music of Karl Jenkins, via a Carousel ride, the busy streets of Paris, and a Roman Carnival, to a less well-known work by Victor Hugo (well, less known than Les Miserables), a really famous comic opera by Mozart and the suite from which the advert for Hamlet cigars comes.
Although Karl Jenkins’ music is the most recent featured in this concert, its source is the architecture of the 16th century Italian, Andrea Palladio, which the composer associates with a Renaissance celebration of harmony and order. As such, it forms a link which extends back to the time of Bach and beyond.

Robert Guy will conduct you through this condensed reverse history of musical styles and masterpieces. What more could anyone need?
