Saturday 28 June 1997
We have tickets on offer for the opening night of the Festival at the Cheltenham Town Hall where the BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Vassily Sinaisky, will present the following programme: Brahms Symphony No1 in C minor, Buller Illusions (world premiere) and Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No1 in B minor, with Boris Berezovsky (above) on piano, the piece with which he won the 1990 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow
The first 10 Eye readers to call the Festival box office - 01242 227979 (9.30am-5.30pm, Mon-Sat) - will win a pair of free tickets for the above concert and a free CD of Boris Berezovsky's recording of Russian solo piano music (Teldec). The next 15 callers to the box office will be offered the chance to buy two tickets for the price of one, and if they book, they will also receive a CD.
