BEETHOVEN Leonore Overture No.3

BRUCH Violin Concerto No.1

BRAHMS Symphony No.2

Barry Wordsworth Conductor
Esther Yoo Violin (RPO Artist-in-Residence 2018)

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


Raising the curtain to an all-German programme, Beethoven’s much-loved Leonore Overture No.3 opens with sparkling tunes and uncontainable waves of joy. Musical fireworks colour Bruch’s First Violin Concerto, which is a showpiece of remarkable lyricism and emotional weight, performed by the RPO’s 2018 Artist-in-Residence, Esther Yoo. Written whilst on holiday in the summer of 1877, Brahms’ Symphony No.2, a work of rich complexity and subtlety, closes the concert with its graceful melodies and magnificently radiant brass finale.
