Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Repertoire

Glinka
Ruslan and Lyudmila Overture
Tchaikovsky
Violin Concerto in D major
Brahms
Symphony No. 1

Performers

Alessandro Fabrizi
conductor
Yoon-Hee Kim
violin

Glinka was one of the most celebrated Russian composers of his time, influencing younger figures such as Rimsky-Korsakov and Borodin. The story goes that the plot to Glinka’s opera Ruslan and Lyudmila was concocted in minutes by a drunken poet, but Glinka’s music, in the Overture especially, shines through, full of infectious energy.

Despite winning Glinka’s composition prize, Tchaikovsky’s music was not always appreciated during his lifetime. His ravishing Violin Concerto was criticised at first, yet has since become one of his most popular works.

Overwhelmed by the example of Beethoven, Brahms took years to complete his First Symphony – but it was worth the wait. With its noble themes and rhythmic subtleties, Brahms proved himself a master of the genre.
