Grzegorz Nowak conducts Romantic Classics

Saturday 14 February 2015, 7.30pm

TCHAIKOVSKY Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture 

MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto 

DVOŘÁK Symphony No.9, ‘From the New World’ 

Grzegorz Nowak Conductor
Tamsin Waley-Cohen Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


A special Valentine's performance with three sublime romantic classics, opening with the popular tale of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture. The Orchestra is joined by violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen, a performer of ‘fearless intensity’ (The Guardian), who will perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. There is perhaps no more popular or beloved violin concerto than Mendelssohn’s masterpiece, soaring into the passionate opening theme in the solo violin and concluding in an enchanting, dazzling finale. 

Inspired by his travels across America, Dvořák’s Symphony No.9, ‘From the New World’, is by far one of the most famous and drew the Romantic era to a powerful close.
