Great art inspires future generations, so it's no surprise that Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev looked to the past masters in their ‘Rococo’ Variations for Cello and Orchestra and the ‘Classical’ Symphony.
Pavlo Beznosiuk returns as guest leader, after his triumphant debut last year, and we welcome cellist Qin Li-Wei as soloist with re:Sound.
The Concerto for Four Violins by Vivaldi is paired with Tchaikovsky's delightful ‘Rococo’ Variations, and Haydn's ‘London’ Symphony, an exemplar of classical symphonic writing, is paired with Prokofiev's tribute to the era.
