BBC Radio 3 to record Horsham Symphony Orchestra World Premiere


The Horsham Symphony Orchestra, under its principal conductor, Steve Dummer, and co-leader, Barry Sutton, present their summer concert at the Capitol with a programme of tantalising repertoire, including a world premiere performance.

The concert opens with Nicolai’s Overture to The Merry Wives of Windsor. This will be followed by the world premiere performance of Suite Dialogues, written by the Brazilian born percussion virtuoso and composer, Adriano Adewale. The brand new work was commissioned for the Horsham Symphony Orchestra, as part of the Adopt a Composer partnership scheme to support emerging composers, which is run by Making Music in partnership with Sound and Music, in association with BBC Radio 3, and funded by PRS for Music Foundation and the Philip and Dorothy Green Trust. The world premiere performance will be recorded by the BBC for broadcast on Radio 3.

The evening closes with a performance of Rachmaninov’s final masterpiece: Symphonic Dances Op. 45.

Performance: Saturday 1 July, 7.30pm, Capitol Theatre.
