Colour Series - Green

Part of Associate Orchestras

The BBC Concert Orchestra and Principal Conductor Bramwell Tovey paint a musical portrait of the colour green.

Emeralds. Jealousy. Youth. Joy. Spring. Victory. Nature. We discover how green has been melodically interpreted through great classics and music of today.

Part of the BBC Concert Orchestra’s new, occasional series of concerts inspired by colours, this performance features the world premiere of John Harle's piece written for young saxophonist of the moment, Jess Gillam.
