TCHAIKOVSKY Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture

TCHAIKOVSKY Sleeping Beauty Waltz

TCHAIKOVSKY 1812 Overture

This spectacular and explosive concert pays tribute to the genius of Tchaikovsky, with an unmissable programme ranging from his sunny Capriccio Italien to the popular tale of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers in the Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture.

Renowned pianist Peter Donohoe performs Tchaikovsky's immortal Piano Concerto No.1 with its familiar opening and fiendishly virtuosic passages. Initially disapproved of by his critics, the piece has become one of the great war-horses of Romantic concertos for keyboard.

Music Director of the Royal Ballet, Covent Garden, Barry Wordsworth, conducts the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in this fabulous concert which culminates with the rousing and brassy grand finale of the 1812 Overture.
