Spotlight on Strings

Friday 11 June 2021, 7.30pm

GRIEG Holberg Suite
MENDELSSOHN String Symphony No.10
TCHAIKOVSKY Serenade for Strings

Duncan Riddell Director/Violin

Strings of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Introduced from the stage, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Leader Duncan Riddell directs this exquisite 75-minute performance, putting the string section of the Orchestra in the spotlight with a selection of well-loved pieces. Grieg’s popular Holberg Suite is supremely crafted, based on eighteenth-century dance forms, while Mendelssohn’s String Symphony No.10 displays a touch of his sensitive style. Tchaikovsky’s sublime Serenade for Strings completes the programme. A work inspired by Mozart and described by the composer as written ‘from the heart’, the Serenade is the perfect piece to showcase the luscious sounds of the RPO’s strings.

The safety of our audiences is of paramount importance. Government guidelines and safety measures are followed at all the venues in which the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performs to ensure that you are able to enjoy the performance in a safe, comfortable environment.
