Strings of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Duncan Riddell director

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) is excited to be returning to its home ground for a series of lunchtime concerts that will shine a spotlight on the different sections of the Orchestra.

Introduced from the stage, today’s informal 75-minute performance concludes the Spotlight Series. The concert will showcase the luscious sounds of a full string orchestra. Pulitzer Prize-winning African-American composer George Walker’s moving Lyric for Strings, originally entitled ‘Lament’, precedes Nielsen’s elegiac Little Suite, an early work that announced the talents of the great Danish composer. The second half of the programme features two ever-popular works – Barber’s timeless, stirring Adagio for Strings and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, a work inspired by Mozart and described by the composer as written ‘from the heart’.
