Venue: Neuadd Dewi Sant / St David's Hall
Time: 15:30

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
