A DANCE fantasy by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra will be held at Bournemouth Pavilion next month.

Under the baton of the Young Conductor-in-Association Victor Aviat, the BSO will be joined by Venezuelan born violinist Giovanni Guzzo (pictured).

Giovanni is one of the most versatile and charismatic performers of his generation, captivating audiences around the world with his unique and passionate approaches to his performances.

The concert will be presented by John Brunning, a radio broadcaster on Classic FM.

The Slavonic Dances are a series of 16 orchestral pieces by Antonín Dvo?ák, inspired by Johannes Brahms’ Hungarian Dances and were composed by Dvo?ák.

The Slavonic Dances are loosely based around the folk-style but also use original melody to create a lively mood filled with national character.

They were well received at the time and today are considered among Dvo?ák’s most famous works.

Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune is one of Debussy’s most famous works, to create a light airy feel.

The music itself tells the tale of a mythical faun alone in the woods, playing his pipes, who is enchanted by nymphs and naiads and drifts off to sleep with vibrant dreams. The sleepy calm of an afternoon in the forest is evoked through the dreamy opening flute tune and smooth melodies throughout the piece.

The evening promises to be a celebration of dance, with a programme that also includes works by Ravel, Sarasante and Chausson.

Dance Fantasy is at Bournemouth Pavilion on Saturday, January 27 at 7.30pm.

Ticket prices range from £27.50-£13 (concessions available)
