Tchaikovsky Francesca da Rimini
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Alpesh Chauhan conductor
Diana Adamyan violin
In a bombastic, passionate and lively programme, this concert will display the full force of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in an exhilarating programme. Opening with Borodin’s much-loved Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor, these familiar tunes will stir the senses.
Next the Orchestra is delighted to perform Prokofiev’s enchanting Second Violin Concerto with Diana Adamyan, winner of the 2018 Menuhin Competition, whilst Mussorgsky’s Night on the Bare Mountain raises the tension with its instantly recognisable nightmarish qualities.
This quintessentially Russian concert draws to a close with Tchaikovsky’s swirling tone-poem of doomed lovers, Francesca da Rimini.
This concert is preceded by an RPO Prelude at 6.15pm.
