- Don Juan
- Cello Concerto
- Symphony No. 5
- Alexander Shelley
- Guy Johnston
An irresistible programme boasting three gems of the repertoire. Don Juan is one of the most technically demanding works written for the orchestra, requiring huge skill from every single musician. Marvel at the virtuosity of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as it tells the story of the unfortunate philanderer, portrayed by Strauss with great wit and energy.
Then cellist Guy Johnston takes centre stage for Elgar’s Cello Concerto, a work of intense beauty and searing emotion.
Sibelius made numerous wonderful contributions to the symphonic repertoire, none more glorious than the Fifth Symphony, culminating in a breathtaking finale with its sweeping French horn theme.
