Programme

  • Wagner Tristan and Isolde: Prelude to Act I13′
  • Wolf-Ferrari Violin Concerto (UK premiere)35′
  • Respighi The Fountains of Rome15′
  • Mendelssohn Symphony No. 4 (Italian)26′

The brilliant young conductor Daniele Rustioni brings a sense of theatre to everything he touches – and tonight he takes a very personal journey through the music of his native Italy. Respighi’s Fountains of Rome fill the air with glittering spray; Mendelssohn’s Italian symphony dances a wild tarantella under the midday sun. And 74 years after it was written, enjoy the UK premiere of Wolf-Ferrari’s gorgeous Violin Concerto: imagine a Puccini opera where a violin is the diva!

CBSO+ 6.15pm: Jessica Duchen uncovers the passionate love story behind this rare and very beautiful Violin Concerto.
