Seeking New Horizons III: Political Protest

Thursday 25 April 2019, 7.30pm

WAGNER Overture and Venusberg Music from Tannhäuser

RACHMANINOV Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

MANUEL DE FALLA The Three-Cornered Hat

Alexander Shelley Conductor
Vadym Kholodenko Piano
Rebecca Afonwy-Jones Mezzo-soprano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

The legend that the violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini sold his soul to the devil in order to become obscenely talented has inspired numerous composers, but one of the finest variations of the theme is considered to be Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, performed by the supremely talented Vadym Kholodenko. In contrast, Alexander Shelley opens the programme by delving into the exhilarating world of Wagner, whilst Manuel de Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat provides a thrilling climax.
