Tchaikovsky      Fantasy Overture: Romeo and Juliet
Prokofiev           Violin Concerto no. 1
Shostakovich    Symphony no. 10

Natalia Lomeiko violin
Yuri Simonov 

Tchaikovsky’s passionate romantic fantasy makes a full-blooded opening to this concert. Prokofiev’s violin concerto has the atmosphere of a fairy tale or dream, with the two rhapsodic outer movements divided by a quirky scherzo. The Tenth is perhaps Shostakovich’s finest symphony – an epic journey, powerful and dramatic, yet with moments of touching simplicity. The first three movements, filled with a sense of struggle and including a menacing, whirlwind scherzo, are balanced by a more optimistic finale completed after the death of Stalin.

Pre-concert talk, 6.30pm | The Forge
