RPO on Tour: MITO Festival, Milan

SCHUMANN Träumerei, from Kinderszenen op.15 (Orchestral arrangement by Victoria Borisova-Ollas based on the original score for piano)

TCHAIKOVSKY Concert in D Major for Violin and Orchestra Op. 35

STRAVINSKY L’oiseau De Feu

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Tchaikovsky recalled his famed ballets even when he composed for violin and orchestra. Stravinsky stepped onto the world stage with a masterpiece whose focus was dance. And Victoria Borisova-Ollas dances her way to Schumann, making the most of today’s palette of tone-colors. Three generations of Russian composers come together for a festive evening indeed.

We are very grateful to Sergej Krylov for stepping in at very short notice to cover for Julia Fischer.

Part of the MITO Festival.
