Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture (Fingal’s Cave)
Rodrigo Concierto de Aranjuez
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Sean Shibe classical guitar
Sascha Goetzel conductor
Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture is a voyage of discovery across a sweeping, untempered Scottish seascape. Rodrigo’s iconic Concierto de Aranjuez, performed by classical guitarist Sean Shibe, instantly recalls the distinctive favours of Spanish Romanticism with the wondrous use of heart-wrenching melody and sustained harmonies shared between soloist and orchestra.
Closing the evening is Rimsky-Korsakov’s fantastical Scheherazade, reinterpreting the classic legend of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights in dreamlike fashion as shimmering strings and entrancing woodwind conjure visions of musical escapism.
