Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Music And Nature


MENDELSSOHN Hebrides Overture (Fingal’s Cave)
ELGAR Elegy for Strings
MOZART Violin Concerto No.3
BEETHOVEN Symphony No.6, ‘Pastoral’

Matthew Coorey Conductor
Francesca Dego Violin

Opening this concert will be Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture, which conjures the sights and sounds of Scottish scenery, from calm still waters to intense and dramatic storms. Elgar’s regal and soulful Elegy for Strings sets the scene for Mozart’s sublime Violin Concerto, performed by the sonorously talented Francesca Dego. Dego is one of the most sought-after young violinists on the international scene, supported by Comitato Nazionale Italiano Musica (CIDIM), SIAE, S’Illumina and MiBACT.

Closing the concert is Beethoven’s stirring Symphony No.6, ‘Pastoral’ which provides the perfect conclusion to this orchestral journey through nature.
