A programme of music from three symphonic masters, showcasing some of the greatest work of
its time. Schumann’s opera Genoveva is characterised by the composer’s intoxicating Romanticism. The scenesetting piece is one of stormy drama, with restless, passionate strings and rousing, powerful horns.
Mendelssohn’s tender and emotive Violin Concerto is rightly considered one of the greatest. One of the summits of the composer’s outputs, it is full of impassioned, mighty and instantly memorable tunes. Yury Revich – one of the most expressive and versatile musicians of his generation – will perform an interpretation of incredible depth and creativity.
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 Romantic symphonic works.
