MENDELSSOHN Hebrides Overture (Fingal's Cave)

GRIEG Piano Concerto

BRAHMS Symphony No.4

Alexander Shelley Conductor
Danny Driver Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


Join the Orchestra's Principal Associate Conductor Alexander Shelley for a classical concert perfect for the start of autumn. Opening the concert will be Mendelssohn’s mysteriously intense Fingal’s Cave, which depicts the stormy tides and still waters in Scottish scenery.

The centrepiece of tonight’s programme is without doubt one of the most popular works ever written for the piano – Grieg’s Piano Concerto. Its dramatic opening leads into rich lyrical melodies and passages of showstopping virtuosity, performed by Danny Driver, a pianist of ‘impeccable technique and musicianship’ (Gramophone).

Brahms' majestic Symphony No.4 opens in a dramatic vein and continues to flow with an urgency and lyrical beauty. The work's comfortingly familiar melodies and melancholy tone provide a beautiful ending to Wycombe's 2016 classical season.
