Jan Mráček performs Beethoven

Friday 16 June 2017, 7.30pm

DEBUSSY Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune

BEETHOVEN Violin Concerto

SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No.5

Martyn Brabbins Conductor
Jan Mráček Violin

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


Debussy’s symphonic poem tells the tale of a mythical faun, playing his pipes alone in the woods. From the dreamy opening flute tune, the sleepy calm of an afternoon in the forest is evoked through smooth melodies and almost improvisatory passages.

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, meanwhile, bridges the gap between Classical and Romantic concerto styles with elegance and wit, culminating in a zesty and spirited finale.

This summer concert concludes with Shostakovich’s imposing Fifth Symphony: filled with wonderful melodies and stirring rhythms, it bursts with power and rebellious beauty.


Pre-concert performance at 6.15pm...

RPO Preludes: Prokofiev and Berio
