Tchaikovsky - Overture: Romeo and Juliet
Rodrigo - Concierto de Aranjuez
Mussorgsky orch. Ravel - Pictures at an Exhibition. 

Conductor Roberto González-Monjas brings us this special Thursday evening performance as part of the Belfast Festival, offering one of the most delightful and well-known classical programmes this Season.

Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Overture is a magical fantasy piece, based on Shakespeare's famous tragedy. One of the composer's best loved works, this beautiful piece is now one of the most recognistable romantic melodies in the world. 

The ever-popular and emotive Concierto de Aranjuez is brought to life by guest guitarist Rafael Aguirre. Many people's first encounter with this beautiful Spanish piece may have been the 1996 film Brassed Off!

A Classic FM Playlist favourite, Pictures at an Exhibition was inspired by a visit to an art exhibition, with each of the movements representing one of the drawings or artworks on display.
