STRAVINSKY Suite for Small Orchestra Nos.1 and 2
KORNGOLD Violin Concerto
DVOŘÁK Symphony No.9, ‘From the New World’
Alexander Shelley Conductor
Jennifer Pike Violin
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Even radical revolutionaries have to chill out from time to time, and Stravinsky was no exception. Composed as two small delightful miniatures, his Suites Nos.1 and 2 embody his lightest and most most high-spirited of emotions. In contrast, Korngold’s Violin Concerto is rich in powerful lyricism and unbridled virtuosity. Performed by star-violinist Jennifer Pike, this is a work designed to thrill. Concluding with one of the greatest orchestral works, Alexander Shelley conducts Dvořák’s triumphant ‘New World’ Symphony.
