Tchaikovsky, Mozart & Richard Strauss

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 3 Polish

R. Strauss Overture and Dance Scene: Ariadne auf Naxos
Mozart Piano Concerto No.24
Tchaikovsky Symphony No.3 Polish

This concert shines a spotlight on music filled with sumptuous drama. Strauss’s incidental music for Ariadne auf Naxos gives more than a flavour of its protagonists flitting across the opera stage. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.24 just pre-dates Don Giovanni and The Marriage of Figaro and it too brings all the poise and characterful drama of opera to the concert stage. Our second half moves from the world of opera to ballet, as Tchaikovsky finished his Third Symphony before writing Swan Lake and this work pirouettes with the kinetic energy of the corps de ballet.
