  1. Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture - Pyotr Tchaikovsky
  2. Concerto for violin and orchestra No 1 in D Op 19 - Sergey Prokofiev
  3. Symphony No 10 in E minor Op 93 - Dmitry Shostakovich

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
