This programme celebrates the rich music heritage of Romania, beginning with Enescu’s neoclassical Suite No. 2, full of spirit and vigour from the composer’s homeland.
Renowned violinist Alexandru Tomescu pairs Saint-Saëns’ inventive and impressionistic Violin Concerto No. 3 with a musical gem of sheer Romantic indulgence by little-known Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu.
Nicknamed the ‘Jupiter’, Mozart’s final symphony is a true 18-century tour de force and widely regarded as the zenith of the Classical period.
