Some intense rehearsal with Andrei Korobeinikov, in preparation for the awesome Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini tonight 🤩 It will be followed by Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, so this concert is not one to miss! (Don't worry, it's also being performed in Portsmouth Guildhall tomorrow👀) #classicalmusic #berlioz
Here is a beautiful image by @inspiredaub Illustration student, Louise Kruse. The piece is inspired by Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz, which is featuring in our Unrequited Love concerts this week ❤️ This illustration forms part of a whole exhibition based around the works in the concert, keep your eyes peeled for more art coming over the next couple of days.
