RSNO - Romantic Valentine’s: Romeo and Juliet
Szymanowski Suite from King Roger
Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No2
Prokofiev Selection from Romeo and Juliet
Thomas Søndergård Conductor
Simon Trpčeski Piano
‘But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?’ Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers have inspired some truly glorious music, and if you only know Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet from The Apprentice, you’re in for a wonderful surprise. In the week of Valentine’s Day, Thomas Søndergård and the RSNO will sweep you off your feet, while powerhouse pianist Simon Trpčeski brings the house down every time he plays. Saint-Saëns’ Second Piano Concerto has some serious sparkle: it just got even brighter.
