Saturday 30 June 2018
Wymondham Abbey

Summer Concert

  • Academic Festival Overture - Johannes Brahms
  • Symphony in D minor for organ & orchestra - Alexandre Guilmant with Rob Goodrich, organ
  • Symphony No. 2 in D - Johannes Brahms

The traditional format of this concert displays the towering presence of Brahms, complimented by his French contemporary, the organist Alexandre Guilmant. Two of Brahms's most popular works frame a rarely heard organ 'concerto' which combines the power of a symphony orchestra with that of a grand organ. It is marvellous to invite Rob Goodrich to display his virtuosity with us again.

  • Start time - 19:30
  • Ticket prices:- £12 (adult), £10 (Friends), £2 (children)
