Tchaikovsky The Storm 
Dani Howard Trombone Concerto 
Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade 

Our concert opens in a maelstrom of emotion – and weather! Tchaikovsky’s operatic overture The Storm is based on a play by Russian dramatist Ostrovsky in which a woman confesses to an affair during a terrifying storm and the overture contains all the emotional turmoil of the play, as well as the storm itself. 
Dani Howard’s Trombone Concerto was a commission from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, which became one of her major projects during the COVID-19 lockdown. It tells a story of self-discovery, exploring one’s potential and finding self-confidence. It creates a sense of energy and optimism, portrayed through the virtuosity of Peter Moore, our soloist for tonight and for whom the piece was written.  
Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade turns from introspection to the world of fantasy and the tales of the Arabian Nights. The composer drew on his early life as a sailor in depicting the exploits of Sinbad and his crew as they meet royalty in love and conquer dramatic shipwrecks – all human life and emotion plays out through this mesmerising musical narrative.
