Charlie Siem performs Tchaikovsky

Wednesday 7 November 2018, 7.30pm

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

MENDELSSOHN Hebrides Overture

TCHAIKOVSKY Violin Concerto

SIBELIUS Symphony No. 2

Jac van Steen Conductor 
Charlie Siem Violin

Opening the concert is Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture, which conjures the sights and sounds of Scottish scenery, from calm still waters to intense and dramatic storms.  

With its unrelenting energy and use of Russian peasant dance rhythms, Tchaikovsky’s stunning masterpiece is notably one of the most difficult violin concertos in the repertoire and provides an impressive centrepiece to this evening’s concert.

One of Sibelius’ most engaging and beautiful compositions, his Symphony No.2 evokes the expansive, glacial landscape of his native Finland. From an anguished, slow movement to a finale of furious passion, this piece climaxes in a flourish of exhilarating heroism.
