The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra return to Royal & Derngate on Sunday, May 4, for an evening of classical masterpieces.

Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony and Elgar’s Enigma Variations will be performed either side of Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto, with featured soloist Chloë Hanslip.

Although Schubert intended further movements, his ‘unfinished’ two-movement symphony was first performed 37 years after his death. Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor was his first large-scale work for orchestra, and remains one of the most popular of all violin concertos.

Chloë Hanslip will give a pre-concert talk at 6.30pm hosted by BBC Radio Northampton’s John Griff ahead of the show at 7.30pm.

Tickets costs from £14.50 with concessions available.

There will also be workshops for children aged between two and 13 during the day. Call the venue for session details. To book call 01604 624811 or visit
