Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Mussorgsky Night on the Bare Mountain
Barber Adagio for Strings
Grieg Piano Concerto
Khachaturian Sabre Dance
Rimsky-Korsakov Capriccio Espagnol
Conductor John Rigby
Piano Sarah Beth Briggs
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor John Rigby present a concert featuring some of the most popular works from the classical repertoire. Samuel Barber’s exquisite string quartet Adagio has become better known in this version for full string orchestra, and is familiar to cinema audiences as the soundtrack to the films The Elephant Man and Platoon. Grieg’s ever-popular Piano Concerto retains all of its power to thrill and entertain. The concert ends with two contrasting evocations of Spain: Rimsky-Korsakov’s set of glittering regional portraits, and Ravel’s celebrated Boléro, a rhythmically obsessed crescendo for orchestra whose minimalist structure is so unusual that Ravel thought orchestras would refuse to play it!
