Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; A Voyage Of Discovery

April

16

Thursday

MENDELSSOHN Hebrides Overture (Fingals Cave)
RODRIGO Concierto de Aranjuez
RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Scheherazade

Sascha Goetzel Conductor
Sean Shibe Guitar

Mendelssohns Hebrides Overture is a voyage of discovery across a sweeping, untempered Scottish seascape. Rodrigos iconic Concierto de Aranjuez , performed by classical guitarist Sean Shibe, instantly recalls the distinctive flavours of Spanish Romanticism with the wondrous use of heart-wrenching melody and sustained harmonies shared between soloist and orchestra.

Closing the evening is Rimsky-Korsakovs fantastical Scheherazade, reinterpreting the classic legend of one thousand and one Arabian nights in dreamlike fashion as shimmering strings and entrancing woodwind conjure visions of musical escapism.
