Johan Dalene plays Tchaikovsky

Thursday 27 February 2025, 7.30pm
Cadogan Hall

Sibelius Nightride and Sunrise
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
Nielsen Symphony No.2, ‘The Four Temperaments’

Shiyeon Sung Conductor
Johan Dalene Violin (RPO Artist-in-Residence, 2024–25)

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

When Johan Dalene won the Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition in 2019, one critic predicted that he’d become the greatest Swedish violinist in generations: a player with ‘a wondrous tone, an elegant straightforwardness and a freshness of utterance’ (Gramophone). We just say come and hear for yourself, as Dalene returns for his second Cadogan Hall concert as the RPO’s Artist-in-Residence. He joins forces with conductor Shiyeon Sung in Tchaikovsky’s hugely popular, gloriously tuneful Violin Concerto. First, though, experience the primal splendour of a Nordic dawn, as seen by Jean Sibelius, and then brace yourself for the unbridled life force of Carl Nielsen in full torrent. His extraordinary Second Symphony took its inspiration from a painting in a Danish pub – and you’d better believe it goes straight to the head!

Large print versions and digital formats of the programme for this concert are available on request for customers with accessibility requirements. Please email your request to Doran Crowhurst at least one full week before the performance.
