Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Colourful drama, infectious charm and titanic strength are built into this sumptuous programme from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under distinguished conductor Thierry Fischer. Launched by arresting timpani gestures, Brahms’s First Symphony wrestles with the whole weight of musical history and ends with one of the most sublime closing movements of any symphony.
After 30 years in the top flight of the world’s violinists, Tasmin Little is retiring as a soloist. One of the most engaging performers you’ll see, she’ll be hugely missed. For her final curtain call she’ll be playing Mozart’s sublimely lyrical Fourth Violin Concerto*, one of four for the instrument that he wrote in 1775, and which signalled a new level of creativity in his writing.
*Message regarding Tasmin Little
“Tasmin very much regrets that, due to an injury to her finger which has resulted in the cancellations of all performances from December to early February, she has lost a vital two months of preparation for her 2020 performances. This is the first time in her 33 year career that she has ever cancelled concerts due to injury; sadly, she has also had to alter some repertoire for her upcoming concerts, therefore tonight she will play Mozart‘s beautiful Concerto in D major k. 218 and not the Dvorak as advertised. Tasmin is very happy that this concert with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Thierry Fischer can still go ahead, albeit with different repertoire, and she thanks the audience very much for their kind understanding.”
