Although unfinished in the usual four-movement structure, this B minor Symphony is a complete, essential and mysterious symphonic experience. The Philharmonia Orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali brings his ‘imaginative, often spectacular musicality’ (LA Times) to Richard Strauss’ orchestral suite drawn from his glorious opera Der Rosenkavalier. It’s a whirl of orchestral virtuosity and Viennese waltzes bringing together the highlights of a comic love story. Recently appointed as Chief Conductor Designate of the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, Elim Chan has been receiving rave reviews for her performances. Seenandheard remarked: ‘Chan brought out all the fantastically coloured nuances of the music, almost like visually seeing the music with our eyes and ears.’ Tonight she conducts Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece Romeo and Juliet, the tone poem which encompasses in one movement the genius and passions of Shakespeare’s incomparable play.  HarrisonParrott web site.
