Jan Mráček performs Mendelssohn

Sunday 18 June 2017, 7.30pm

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

MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto

SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No.5

Martyn Brabbins Conductor
Jan Mráček Violin

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


Opening this summer concert is Debussy’s sumptuous and dreamlike Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune conducted by Martyn Brabbins, depicting the tale of a mythical faun, playing his pipes alone in the woods. Jan Mráček follows with one of the foremost violin concertos of the Romantic era full of warmth and vitality, Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.

Filled with wonderful melodies and stirring rhythms, Shostakovich’s imposing Symphony No.5 is bursting with tremendous power and rebellious beauty. Written under Stalin’s constricting Soviet regime, Shostakovich created a blend of satire and submission that intrigues audiences to this day.
