Free pre-concert talk at 6.45pm by Judy Blezzard.

Originally conceived as an opera, Tchaikovsky’s symphonic fantasy was inspired by the story of Francesca and Paolo. This tempestuous piece follows two souls lost in hell owing to their adulterous affair.

Korngold’s Violin Concerto marries cinematic style with the concert hall in an unashamedly romantic work for solo violin and orchestra. Writing in 1940s Hollywood, from the hearttugging opening theme to the lively final movement, Korngold blends big tunes with shimmering orchestral textures to create a work ranked as one of the best concertos of its time.

When Mussorgsky’s close friend, architect and painter Victor Hartmann, died, an exhibition of his work was arranged in St Petersburg. It was here that Mussorgsky conceived his tribute – a suite of piano pieces depicting a selection of the paintings, which was later orchestrated by Ravel.

The concert will be finished by approximately 9.20pm.
