MENDELSSOHN A Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture

CHOPIN Piano Concerto No.2

VAUGHAN WILLIAMS The Wasps Overture

ELGAR ‘Enigma’ Variations

Barry Wordsworth Conductor
Janina Fialkowska Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


Opening this autumn concert is Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture, which perfectly captures the magic and ethereal beauty of Shakespeare’s work, beginning with four suspenseful and transforming chords.

Joining the Orchestra for a performance of Chopin’s astonishing Second Piano Concerto is Janina Fialkowska, ‘a musician of extraordinary sensibility and captivating, artless purity’ (The Telegraph). Chopin’s Concerto is sure to delight as this dramatic work ends in a playful yet dazzlingly brilliant finale.

Elgar’s ever popular and quintessentially English ‘Enigma’ Variations provides a fantastic finish to this performance. A landmark piece not just for Elgar, but for British music, Elgar wrote his Variations in dedication to a number of dear friends, with one theme left unnamed, adding to the work’s mystery and intrigue.
