Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Vasily Petrenko (conductor)
Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra present a concert that moves from the lush, late-Romantic soundscapes of Strauss’s songs (with soprano Miah Persson) and the sweeping melodic generosity of Elgar’s Italy-inspired overture In the South to the leaner, more percussive intensity of Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra – a virtuosic showcase for the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert also includes the world premiere of Iain Bell’s concerto for coloratura soprano and orchestra, Aurora, featuring soprano Adela Zaharia.
