We absolutely loved last night; it was our third FSO concert and we will be at the January one too. Can't miss a bit of Bach!!
The FSO's performance under Ben Palmer yesterday evening was truly inspirational. I loved his speech about the movements of the Tchaikovsky. Very well done. Enjoyable evening.

Another fabulous performance and a great party atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed the cello during the sea songs! The Mendelssohn violin concerto was another highlight. A great concert and thanks for making it such an enjoyable evening.

The concert/film was very enjoyable - the orchestra are very good. My daughter also enjoyed it and is looking forward to the concert in June - a successful introduction of a child to a classical concert. Thank you!

I thought Mark Fitz-Gerald gave Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ symphony a strikingly lyrical interpretation that was far removed from the emotional interpretations of those who pay far too much attention to the circumstances of the composer’s hard life and early death. The evening ended on a high note with Dvořák’s delightful Symphonic Variations. The applause that followed showed how much the audience enjoyed a piece that deserves far more frequent airings.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the concert; we thought the Farnborough Symphony Orchestra were fantastic and Irena Lyakhovskya played the piano wonderfully with such emotion (Lang Lang watch out!). A most enjoyable evening and I hope to attend other concerts.
I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Saturday's concert. The Brahms was fantastic (I would have come just for that alone) and the Wagner overture provided a wonderfully rousing opening to the concert! I'm not much of a fan of Rachmaninov, but that was lovely as well. The soloist was amazing!

So enjoyed the concert last night. Thought the Shostakovich the best thing I'd heard the orchestra do. Deeply grateful to you and all your colleagues for all the hard work that you undoubtedly put in.

Congratulations! There were times during the ensemble playing of Tchaikovsky's 6th when the music seemed to float up from the orchestra in one piece, like a transfer floating off its backing when dipped in water. The overture introduced the orchestra brilliantly, I thought, and the four young horn players were a delight. With some wonderfully atmospheric Wagner for good measure, what a truly entertaining programme it was. Thanks to everybody for all the hard work that must have gone into it.
