- Prince Igor Overture
- Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
- Symphony No. 5
- Fabien Gabel
- Alexandra Dariescu
Led by distinguished conductor Fabien Gabel, the RPO performs a sparkling programme of Russian gems, including the Overture to Borodin’s Prince Igor opera and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5.
Alexandra Dariescu will impress with Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody based on Paganini’s Caprice No. 24 for solo violin. This much-loved work adds depth, drama and dynamic energy to Paganini’s original work and will be electric on the Cadogan Hall stage.
What began as one of Tchaikovsky’s most difficult works to compose subsequently became one of his most well known, as we hear his magnificent masterpiece, Symphony No. 5.
6.15pm: RPO Prelude
A performance of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence.
