- Alessandro Fabrizi
Fidelio was Beethoven’s only opera, yet it spawned no fewer than four overtures. After the gravitas of the three Leonore overtures, Beethoven wanted to produce something more adventurous, resulting in this spirited work.
After the romantic beauty of Mascagni’s famous Intermezzo from his opera Cavalleria rusticana, Grieg’s Piano Concerto, with its scintillating opening is performed by acclaimed pianist Alexandra Dariescu.
Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7 perfectly balances dramatic power and irresistible lyricism. With its arresting opening, gorgeous slow movement, dancing Scherzo and thrilling Finale, this is one of the greatest pieces Dvořák ever wrote. Not to be missed.
