PLAY! With Charles Hazlewood




Dust off your SNESs, N64s and boot up your Playstations as Charles Hazlewood takes us on a musical adventure into some of the gaming worlds most memorable soundtracks.

PLAY! is a symphonic roller-coaster ride of classic computer game themes alongside the orchestral works that paved the way. Taking Holsts The Planets and Strausss iconic tone poems as a starting point, the programme takes in the high-octane pursuit of Grand Theft Auto, the legendary theme to Tetris, the cinematic soundtrack to Final Fantasy VIII and many more. Tonights show will bring together gamers young and young at heart as it references classic console music from the past four decades.

First performed to a rapt audience at Glastonbury Festival 2017, Play! is conducted by Hazlewood and performed by a forty-piece ensemble of musicians from the electrifying Army of Generals and members of the worlds only professional collective of disabled musicians, The British Paraorchestra.
