Alexander Shelley Conducts Scheherazade
Sun 14 Apr
Romeo And Juliet Fantasy Overture
Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini
Conductor Alexander Shelley
Piano Peter Jablonski
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Emerging from a musical family, talented British conductor Alexander Shelley
has firmly established himself on the international concert scene and makes a welcome return to the Orchestra for this spectacular programme.
The dramatic Romeo And Juliet Fantasy Overture
, for many the most perfect expression of the fate of those star-cross’d lovers, is followed by Rachmaninov
’s lushly-scored set of variations for piano and orchestra. Scheherazade
, a series of musical tales drawn from The Arabian Nights
, remains Rimsky-Korsakov’s best-loved work. The scoring is masterly, and its heady mix of sumptuous melody and overwhelming orchestral climaxes has served to maintain the universal popularity of the score.
