Valentine's Day concert

Melvyn Tan, pianist, taking applause at the conclusion of Chopin's Piano Concerto No.3
The Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra enjoyed a record house for the 5th concert in its 91st season.  This was no doubt partly due to the programme being specially chosen for Valentine's day and partly to it being a fine dry Sunday. There were long queues at the box-office.

The event was further distinguished by Barry Wordsworth, the conductor, during a particularly passionate section of Scherezade, losing his baton. This sailed in a graceful arc into the 2nd violins. Barry continued unperturbed. No one was injured during the incident.

Other works included were Berlioz/Weber; Spectre du la Rose / Invitation to the Dance and Mascagni; Intermezzo.
