SMETANA Ma vlast: Vltava
RACHMANINOV Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
DVOŘÁK Symphony No.9
Kerem Hasan Conductor
Daniel Ciobanu Piano*
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra present Dvořák’s seminal work, Symphony No.9, ‘From the New World’. With echoes of the Native American and early African American folk traditions, the running tune throughout the piece so perfectly captures the flavour of the country that it is often described as an original American folk tune.
FREE: Join BBC Radio Northampton’s John Griff for a pre-concert talk with Daniel Ciobanu at 6.30PM.
*Due to a hand injury, Mark Bebbington regrets that he will be unable to play in this evening's concert. In his place, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is excited to welcome Daniel Ciobanu to perform Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
Romanian born Daniel Ciobanu first attracted international acclaim in 2017 at the Arthur Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv where he won both Silver Medal and Audience Prize. His distinctive musical personality and technical command has led to performances with orchestras such as Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Israel Philharmonic and Israel Camerata, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, George Enescu Philharmonic and Romanian National Radio Orchestra.
