Having the composer on hand is a rare luxury for any performer, and the Enigma Orchestra players have seized the opportunity, working alongside John Pickard in rehearsal to make sure every detail of the score is perfect.
“Anyone who hasn’t yet heard Pickard’s powerful and dramatic music should come to this concert,” says Enigma Orchestra’s music director Robert Weaver. “Not only to hear his epic work Sea Change but also to celebrate the fact that we have one of Britain’s greatest composers alive today, living right here in Bristol.”
