Tchaikovsky The Storm
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.
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.
