Here Come The Classics | Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Sunday, November 17, 2019 - 15:00

Europe’s rich tradition of orchestral music has produced countless legendary composers, many inspired by the countries around them, so join the orchestra for an astounding evening of music from around our continent. Mozart’s energetic Overture to The Marriage of Figaro gives a foretaste of the farcical fun of the opera it introduces, and provides a sparkling curtain-raiser for this concert. Then follows Rossini’s explosive Overture to The Italian Girl in Algiers and Mendelssohn’s heart-swelling 'Italian' Symphony; a charming expression of how Italy made him feel.

Free pre-concert talk from 2 - 2:30 pm in the auditorium.
