Led by violinist Tristan Gurney, the orchestra will perform Strauss’ Capriccio Sextet, given to a Nazi officer in 1942, in return for safe passage out of Germany for his Jewish daughter-in-law, as well as Wagner’s intensely romantic, Classic FM favourite, Siegfried Idyll.

The concert is at Hexham Abbey on Sunday, October 20, at 3pm.
