Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Diana Adamyan Violin
A bombastic, passionate and rip-roaring programme
BORODIN Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor
PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No.2
MUSSORGSKY Night on the Bare Mountain, orch. Rimsky-Korsakov
TCHAIKOVSKY Francesca da Rimini
In a bombastic, passionate and lively programme, this concert will display the full force of the orchestra in an exhilarating programme. Opening with Borodin's much-loved Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor, these familiar tunes will stir the senses. Next the Orchestra is delighted to perform Prokofiev's enchanting Second Violin Concerto with Diana Adamyan, winner of the 2018 Menuhin Competition, whilst Mussorgsky's Night on the Bare Mountain raises the tension with its instantly recognisable nightmarish qualities. This quintessentially Russian concert draws to a close with Tchaikovsky's swirling tone-poem of doomed lovers, his Francesca da Rimini.
For more than seven decades the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) has been at the forefront of music-making in the UK. The Orchestra's regular performances at its London home Cadogan Hall are complemented by a distinguished series at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, a hugely popular series at the Royal Albert Hall and frequent visits to its seven principal residencies across the UK. With a wider reach than any other UK large ensemble, the RPO has truly become Britain's national orchestra.www.rpo.co.uk
Cadogan Estates purchased the Hall in 2000 to safeguard its future. Through their connection with Opera Holland Park, Cadogan discovered that the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was looking for a permanent base in London. The Orchestra is proud to have assisted with Cadogan's aim to bring the former church back into useful life in a manner befitting its character and civic presence.
Despite the scale of the auditorium, the combined effects of the stage, the steeply raked stalls and the low gallery create a surprisingly intimate venue where audiences can experience a very real feeling of being part of the performance.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is proud to be Cadogan Hall's Resident Orchestra.
