Moscow Philharmonic Orcherstra
Conductor Yuri Simonov
Soloist Natalia Lomeiko, Violin
Rimsky-Korsakov Sadko 11'
Shostakovich Violin Concerto No 1 35'
Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet (excerpts) 40'
Join the Moscow Philharmonic in an evening of Russian romantic fantasy and tragedy: the bitter-sweet joy and heartbreak of Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet and Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto with violinist Natalia Lomeiko. This music seethes with anger, numbness and a devil-may-care abandonment. And there is an early Rimsky rarity: Sadko tells the story of a minstrel who set all the sea creatures dancing
“Here’s an essentially romantic temperament, as witnessed by some sumptuous Tchaikovsky performances... a tone of viola-like intensity.” THE STRAD
“Natalia Lomeiko is one of the most brilliant of our younger violinists.” YEHUDI MENUHI
