Tchaikovsky – Romeo & Juliet
Tchaikovsky – Piano Concerto No.1
Tchaikovsky – Symphony No.6 “Pathétique”
Conductor: Sergej Bolkhovets
Piano: Slava Sidorenko
With Valentine’s Day so close tonight LMO presents a programme bursting with lush harmonies and romantic melodies that will give a firm tug on your heart-strings in the way that only Tchaikovsky can. What could be more fitting than to start with his fantasy overture to star-crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet? Following this LMO is delighted to welcome back Slava Sidorenko after his phenomenal debut with the orchestra last season, to play Tchaikovsky’s ever popular first Piano Concerto. Finally Tchaikovsky’s final symphony, the “Pathétique”, is the crowning glory of his symphonic compositions – its four movements will have you singing, dancing, cheering and crying in equal measure!
Tchaikovsky Festival will be deftly conducted under the baton of Russian-born Sergej Bolkhovets, who due to popular demand is welcomed back for the first of two LMO concerts this season.
This concert takes place in the Great Hal at Liverpool Hope's Creative Campus. There is a pre-concert talk at 6.45pm.
