A note from Royal Philharmonic Orchestra:
“Following the Government’s announcement encouraging social distancing, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) will cease its concert programme until Easter 2020. Given the health risks presented by the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is acutely aware of the need to protect the health of concert-goers, venue staff and the ensemble itself.
With millions of people self-isolating and working from home, the RPO will soon be introducing a comprehensive ‘RPO At Home’ digital programme that is intended to enrich people’s home routines, to help lift spirits during these unprecedented times.
Please do keep in touch by visiting the Orchestra’s website and social media channels, where you can find videos, blogs and Podcasts. Further announcements on scheduled RPO concerts beyond Easter will be made in due course.”
Weber’s tale of a fairy king forms a fantastical prelude to Karl Goldmark’s lyrical Violin Concerto No. 1. Both composers found success writing operas, but Karl Goldmark’s work as an inspired piece of writing for violin achieves both grandeur and intimacy as it moves effortlessly between flamboyance and slow deliberation in passages of rich Romantic elegance.
Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, ’Pastoral’, is a retreat from the modernity of 19th-century Europe tinged with a nostalgia for a countryside that nurtured Beethoven’s creative passions. Frolicsome melodies dance freely throughout until the penultimate movement conjures up a storm – almost literally – which passes with a glorious wave of relief in the Symphony’s climax.
This concert is preceded by an RPO Prelude at 6.15pm.
