Propelled into action by a galloping Praeludium, Grieg’s Holberg Suite is an energetic and vivacious introduction for Michael Petrov, who takes centre stage for Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, full of charm and grandeur.

The magic of Rimsky-Korsakov’s enchanted May Night is captured in this orchestral gem, before the concert closes with Sibelius’s magnificent Symphony No 5, featuring the elegant, swaying swan motif.
