RPO Spotlight Series: Strings

Cadogan Hall5 Sloane Terrace, London, Greater London, SW1X 9DQ, United Kingdom
Dates/times in London time zone

Concluding the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s autumn Spotlight Series, we focus on the luscious sounds of a full string orchestra. Pulitzer Prize-winning African-American composer George Walker’s moving Lyric for Strings, originally entitled ‘Lament’, precedes Nielsen’s elegiac Little Suite, an early work that announced the talents of the great Danish composer. The second half of the programme features two ever-popular works – Barber’s timeless, stirring Adagio for Strings and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, a work inspired by Mozart and described by the composer as written ‘from the heart’.
