This programme celebrates the rich music heritage of Romania, beginning with Enescu’s neo-Classical Suite No. 2, full of spirit and vigour from the composer’s homeland.
Renowned violinist Alexandru Tomescu pairs Saint-Saëns’ inventive and impressionistic Violin Concerto No. 3 with a musical gem of sheer Romantic indulgence by little-known Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu.
Nicknamed the ‘Jupiter’, Mozart’s final symphony is a true 18-century tour de force and widely regarded as the zenith of the Classical period.
