Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Spotlight on Strings

GRIEG Holberg Suite

MENDELSSOHN String Symphony No.10

TCHAIKOVSKY Serenade for Strings

Duncan Riddell Director/Violin

Strings of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

 Introduced from the stage, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Leader Duncan Riddell directs this exquisite 75-minute performance, putting the string section of the Orchestra in the spotlight with a selection of well-loved pieces. 

Grieg’s popular Holberg Suite is supremely crafted, based on eighteenth-century dance forms, while Mendelssohn’s String Symphony No.10 displays a touch of his sensitive style. Tchaikovsky’s sublime Serenade for Strings completes the programme. A work inspired by Mozart and described by the composer as written ‘from the heart’, the Serenade is the perfect piece to showcase the luscious sounds of the RPO’s strings.

Tickets: £18.50 (discounts: £16.50), Child: £10. Groups 4-6: £9.50 each.
