Rossini, Mozart and Tchaikovsky

The Suisse Romande Orchestra, conducted by Paolo Arrivabeni, performs Rossini, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Liszt and Zemlinsky. Plus a work from the 2019 New Music Biennial.

Today, conductor Paolo Arrivabeni takes to the rostrum to conduct the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, our featured ensemble this week, in a concert which opened with Rossini's overture to La Gazza Ladra. It's followed by Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, with Michel Westphal as soloist, finishing with Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 2 (Little Russian). The second part this afternoon sees the ensemble conducted by Emmanuel Krivine in a concert featuring Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1, with the Russian virtuoso Evgeny Kissin as soloist, and Zemlinsky's fantasy The Little Mermaid, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen.
Also, a newly commissioned piece from the New Music Biennial that took place at the South Bank Centre in London earlier this month.
Presented by Penny Gore.
