KODÁLY Dances of Galánta
LISZT Piano Concerto No.1
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.4
Alexander Shelley Conductor
Mariam Batsashvili Piano
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
The RPO’s Principal Associate Conductor Alexander Shelley conducts Kodály’s five-movement suite, speckled with Hungarian folk tunes and dancing rhythms. Next up is another of Hungary’s greatest composers, with Liszt’s First Piano Concerto. Listen out for the twinkling triangle during the Scherzo, the skittish opening and richly romantic ending.
Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony follows with fierceness and anguish alongside luscious melodies and swelling optimism. This is a work that will stir the senses.
For the second half of tonight's concert, we invite you to enjoy an enhanced listening experience using EnCue, a downloadable app that delivers programme notes to your mobile or tablet device.
