Conductor: Alexander Shelley Violin: Carolin Widmann Rossini William Tell: Overture Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto Sibelius: Symphony No. 2 Bursting brass at a galloping pace proclaims the opening of Rossini’s William Tell Overture and the beginning of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s autumn concert, led by the Orchestra’s dynamic Principal Associate Conductor Alexander Shelley. Joining the Orchestra will be the “fabulously assured and poetic soloist” (The Guardian) Carolin Widmann. Audiences will be able to hear her perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, one of the foremost violin conertos of the Romantic Era, which is full of warmth and vitality. One of Sibelius’ most engaging and beautiful compositions, his Symphony No.2 evokes the unmistakably Nordic sound-world that is associated with the composer’s signature style. Moving from an anguished slow movement to furious passion, this piece climaxes in an exhilarating heroic finale that will leave you breathless.
