- David Gompper
- Sunburst (UK premiere)
- Violin Concerto
- Symphony No. 4
- Emmanuel Siffert
- Wolfgang David
Please note that Wolfgang David will now play Brahms’ Violin Concerto instead of the originally advertised Mendelssohn Concerto.
Opening tonight’s concert is David Gompper’s energetic Sunburst which depicts star formation through an explosive array of tonal colours. The fantastic Austrian violinist, Wolfgang David, continues the drama as he joins the Orchestra for Brahms’ Violin Concerto; a work of contrasting emotions, lyricism and sensitivity.
Concluding the concert is Tchaikovsky’s magnificent Fourth Symphony; a symphony that is dominated by the opening ‘Fate’ motif, but concluding with a jubilant finale.
6.15pm: RPO Preludes – Cello Ensemble
RPO Preludes return after a successful launch during the beginning of last year. The first concert features the RPO’s cello section as it performs a popular and sprightly selection of pieces from around the world. Tickets/More info
