Orchestra to feature some rare creatures

Solihull Symphony Orchestra’s Spring Concert features a rare performance of the whole of Beethoven’s ‘Creatures of Prometheus’ Ballet Music.

Solihull Symphony Orchestra’s Spring Concert features a rare performance of the whole of Beethoven’s ‘Creatures of Prometheus’ Ballet Music.

The Prometheus overture will be familiar to many concert-goers, but the rest of the music is heard less often - and the orchestra has arranged slides and subtitles to accompany the performance.

Music director Martin Leigh said: “Beethoven intended the music to tell a story about how Prometheus brought statues to life. It’s based on Greek mythology, which may be less familiar to people today, and we’d like to help our audience to understand it”.

The concert, which is at Shirley Methodist Church at 7.30pm on Saturday, March 28, also features Schumann’s Rhenish Symphony.

Tickets are available from the orchestra website (www.solihullsymphony.org.uk), from Marie Curie Cancer Care shops or from the Solihull Box Office (0121 704 6962).
