Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Mendelssohn, Mozart + Dvorák

Classical music fest for an unforgettable night

Foreign lands have proved to be the source of powerful inspiration for many composers, and this Saturday concert with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is no exception. Enchanted by the Scottish landscapes, Mendelssohn stirred up his evocations with his Hebrides Overture, which vividly depicts both stormy tides and still coastal waters. Dvorák found inspiration for his Symphony No 8 closer to his home in the folk music of native Bohemia – it's one of his most exuberant works, conducted tonight by Polish conductor Michal Nesterowicz. Esteemed virtuoso Janina Fialkowska also performs Mozart's Piano Concerto No 24; written at the summit of Mozart's creativity, the work's unique quality is fashioned through the darkness of the minor key. Programme: - Mendelssohn: Hebrides Overture - Mozart: Piano Concerto No 24 - Dvorák: Symphony No 8 - conductor: Michal Nesterowicz - piano: Janina Fialkowska Over 5s only.
