WEBER Euryanthe Overture
SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Concerto No.2
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.6, 'Pathétique'
Christoph König Conductor
Dmitry Masleev Piano
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
This concert opens with the charming Overture to Weber’s opera Euryanthe, a work which paved the way for Wagner’s operatic innovations.
This is followed by Martucci’s lush and pensive Notturno. The Orchestra is then joined by Dmitry Masleev for Shostakovich’s energetic Piano Concerto No.2, before the evening is drawn to a close by Tchaikovsky’s monumental Symphony No.6, known as the ‘Pathétique’ Symphony. The Symphony bursts with passion; Tchaikovsky himself described the piece many times in his letters as the best thing he had ever composed.
