Colour Series - Orange

Part of Associate Orchestras

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

Fire. Sunrise. Sunset. Oranges. Warmth. Carrots. Energy. Pumpkins. Danger. We discover how orange 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 Michael Torke's Ecstatic Orange, music that passes through an uplifted frenzy of kaleidoscopic episodes associated with different shades of orange.
