A Voyage of Discovery

MENDELSSOHN Hebrides Overture (Fingal’s Cave)

RODRIGO Concierto de Aranjuez

RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Scheherazade

Sascha Goetzel Conductor
Sean Shibe Guitar

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture is a voyage of discovery across a sweeping, untempered Scottish seascape. Rodrigo’s iconic Concierto de Aranjuez, performed by classical guitarist Sean Shibe, instantly recalls the distinctive flavours of Spanish Romanticism with the wondrous use of heart-wrenching melody and sustained harmonies shared between soloist and orchestra.

Closing the evening is Rimsky-Korsakov’s fantastical Scheherazade, reinterpreting the classic legend of one thousand and one Arabian nights in dreamlike fashion as shimmering strings and entrancing woodwind conjure visions of musical escapism.
