Philharmonia Orchestra

 Tianyi Lu   Conductor
 Chloë Hanslip  Violin
 Mussorgsky  "Dawn on the Moscow River" from Khovanschcina  
 Tchaikovsky  Violin Concerto
 Rimsky-Korsakov   Scheherazade


Thrills, passion and glorious melodies - join us for an all-Russian evening of classical favourites as the Philharmonia makes its long-awaited return to Cardiff. 

Violinist Chloë Hanslip takes centre stage for arguably the best-loved violin concerto of all time - instantly recognisable from its lush opening tune, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto is filled to the brim with the composer's heartfelt style. The poetic work is the perfect showpiece for Hanslip, renowned for her "impassioned lyricism" (The Guardian). 

And to close, we journey to the fantastical world of 1001 Nights in Rimsky-Korsakov's magnificent Scheherazade. From grand scenes to delicate love themes, it's a chance to experience the complete emotional range of the orchestra as the Philharmonia appears for the first time with conductor Tianyi Lu, a local favourite from her work with Welsh National Opera.
