Prom 61: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (II)

This listing is in the past
Royal Albert HallKensington Gore, London, Greater London, SW7 2AP, United Kingdom
On Wednesday 4 September 2019 at 19:00
Festival: BBC Proms

Dvořák’s ‘New World’ Symphony, with its wistful slow movement, is the centrepiece of the second concert from the Vienna Philharmonic – a programme of Central European works that showcases the orchestra’s distinctively rich sound. Andrés Orozco-Estrada pairs it with the composer’s colourful, folk-infused tone-poem The Noonday Witch, in which a mother’s threats inadvertently summon a witch into her home. Cinematic drama is also a hallmark of Korngold’s richly orchestrated and unashamedly romantic Violin Concerto, performed here by soloist Leonidas Kavakos.
