Wagner Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Michele Mariotti conductor
Esther Yoo violin (RPO Artist-in-Residence 2018)
Beginning with a seductive whisper from the strings, Wagner’s most powerful expression of love, torment and loss opens the concert with music from his operatic masterpiece Tristan und Isolde.
There’s nothing hazy, however, about the restless and mysterious opening of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. Journeying from darkness to light, it is rightly considered one of the greatest violin concertos and will showcase the talented Esther Yoo.
After a Beethoven-like struggle with Fate, Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony launches into a whirlpool of emotions, concluding with a thrilling, life-affirming finale.
