To be confirmed
The SWSO close their season with some familiar favourites and a less well-known but hugely dramatic work.
Mendelsson’s overture Ruy Blas takes the themes of Victor Hugo’s play (duplicity, trickery, love and murder) and weaves a musical tapestry. Music from Hindemith’s Symphony Mathis der Maler (Matthias the painter) was later incorporated into a 1935 opera which fell foul of the German authorities and Tchaikovsky’s turbulent 4th Symphony was dedicated to his benefactor Nadezhda von Meck and premiered in 1878.
