ENESCU Suite No.2

SAINT-SAËNS Violin Concerto No.3

PORUMBESCU Ballade for Violin and Orchestra

MOZART Symphony No.41, ‘Jupiter’

Gabriel Bebeselea Conductor
Alexandru Tomescu Violin

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

This programme celebrates the rich music heritage of Romania, beginning with Enescu’s neo-Classical Suite No.2, full of spirit and vigour from the composer’s homeland. Renowned violinist Alexandru Tomescu pairs Saint-Saëns inventive and impressionistic Violin Concerto No.3 with a musical gem of sheer Romantic indulgence by little-known Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu. Nicknamed the ‘Jupiter’, Mozart’s final symphony is a true eighteenth-century tour de force and widely regarded as the zenith of the Classical period.

This concert is kindly supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute.
