Pure Emotion - Concert by the Richmondshire Orchestra

Sunday 24th March, 3pm

“Beethoven only wrote one opera.” Well, one re-written several times with a name change for good measure. The early version, ‘Leonore’ has been described as delivering the story with the purest emotion.

Tchaikovsky, whilst renowned for producing works of exhilarating emotion, turned to the purer musical times of the Rococo period for inspiration in his Variations for Cello and Orchestra, and in doing so composed some of his most intimate and electrifying music.  By contrast, in his Fifth symphony, be ready to experience wide-ranging emotions, from the dreamy 2nd movement to the thrilling power of its finale, that make Tchaikovsky so popular with performers and audiences alike.

We greatly look forward to the return of Jeremy Harbottle to perform the Rococo Variations with us.
