Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
International Concert Series 2018-19
Friday 29 March, 7.30pm
Concert No 9
(in subscription package)
|Director/ Violin||Pinchas Zukerman|
|Elgar||Serenade for Strings||12'|
Five timpani strokes launch Beethoven’s lyrical Violin Concerto; its boldness and unprecedented scale was to set the pattern for the great concertos of the 19th century. Few would have anticipated the huge success of Elgar’s orchestral tour-de-force that is his enigmatic Variations on an Original Theme, and which overnight elevated a moderately successful provincial composer to a national celebratory. His earlier Serenade
for Strings is a work of immense charm.
PRE-CONCERT TALK: Jonathan James illustrates and discusses the programme.
6:30pm - 7pm | Lefel 1
One hour before each of our concerts we have a 30-minute insight into the music and the context to the performance. These popular events are accessible and informative and a great way to get more from your concert experience.
