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.
