Information

Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture is a voyage of discovery across a sweeping, untempered Scottish seascape. Rodrigo’s iconic Concierto de Aranjuez, performed by classical guitarist Sean Shibe, instantly recalls the distinctive favours of Spanish Romanticism with the wondrous use of heart-wrenching melody and sustained harmonies shared between soloist and orchestra.


Closing the evening is Rimsky-Korsakov’s fantastical Scheherazade, reinterpreting the classic legend of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights in dreamlike fashion as shimmering strings and entrancing woodwind conjure visions of musical escapism.


Duration: approx. 2 hours (incl. interval)
