established himself on the international concert
scene and makes a welcome return to the Royal
Philharmonic Orchestra for this spectacular
programme. The dramatic Romeo and Juliet
Fantasy Overture, for many the most
perfect expression of the fate of those starcross’d lovers is followed by Rachmaninov’s
lushly-scored set of variations for piano and
orchestra, performed by Peter Jablonski.
Scheherazade, a series of musical tales
drawn from The Arabian Nights, remains
Rimsky-Korsakov’s best-loved work. The
scoring is masterly, and its heady mix of
sumptuous melody and overwhelming
orchestral climaxes has served
to maintain the universal
popularity of the score.
Tickets: £12 - £31.50.
