Conductor Laureate Barry Wordsworth celebrates his 70th birthday with the Brighton Phil and brings our season to a memorable close joined by pianists Steven Worbey and Kevin Farrell performing Malcolm Arnold’s Piano Concerto for two players, written for and first performed by Cyril Smith and Phyllis Sellick (Steven Worbey’s teacher) at the Proms in 1969.

The virtuosic piano duo also perform Saint-Saëns brilliant Carnival of the Animals, written in 1886 as light relief while he composed his third symphony.

Keep an eye out for details of our annual Open Rehearsal for Children on the morning of the concert which focusses on this work following a series of workshops in local schools.

The concert opens with Sibelius’s Karelia Suite – written early on in his career and based around folk tunes from his native Finland, it has proved to be one of Sibelius’s most popular pieces.

Delibes’s famous comic ballet Coppélia premiered in 1870 and we are delighted to be performing a suite from the ballet score created by our very own Barry Wordsworth.
