WHAT'S ON:toNIGHT´S TOP CHOICE Bellver castle concert.
Tonight´s varied programme (starts 9.30p.m.) conducted by Salvador Brotons opens with Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No, 2, a work in three movements for four soloists and small orchestra. It is the most attractive of the six Brandenburg Concertos composed by Bach in the early 18th century. In tonight´s peformance each of the soloists is a member of the Balearic Symphony Orchestra - Gina Nicola, violin, Josep Miralles, flute, Javier Arnal, oboe, and Ruben Marques, trumpet. This year is the bicentenary of the birth of Franz Liszt, one of the most brilliant figures of the mid-19th century musical scene, both as a virtuoso pianist and a composer whose music reflected his own extraordinary personality. Tonight's Piano Concerto No 2 is in one continuous movement; the soloist is Matthias Kirschnereit.

Dvorak's Symphony No 8 may not be as well-known as his No 9 New World Symphony but it is perfect work for a summer evening, a flow of glorious melody and invention which Dvorak composed in just one month while at home in his beloved Bohemian countryside in 1889.
