Royal Philharmonic Orchestra & Anu Tali

Sibelius & Mozart

Anu Tali, Conductor
Barnabas Kelemann, Violin

Hamlet (Tone Poem)

Violin Concerto No.3

Symphony No.2

Described by the Herald Tribune as 'a charismatic, brilliant [and] energetic', conductor Anu Tali makes a welcome return to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for a programme that explores vibrant soundworlds.Sibelius' Symphony No.2 conjures images of rugged, icy Nordic landscapes but is also full of optimism, with a series of short motifs that grow and develop towards a triumphant conclusion, interpreted by many as an unrelenting call for his country's independence.

Liszt's Hamlet weaves together drama and tragedy in a symphonic poem that depicts the Shakespearean hero, before award-winning Hungarian soloist Barnabas Kelemann performs Mozart's Violin Concerto No.3.
