Musical dreams and fantasies.
Wednesday 17 April 2024 18.00Ends approximately 19.00
In Rachmaninoff’s very last work, Symphonic Dances, he dreams of the Russia of his childhood. In addition, we hear American Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw’s dreamy and imaginative Entr’acte – music inspired by a string quartet by Joseph Haydn. Caroline Shaw describes how some music can transport the listener to another world, like the minuets of Haydn’s op. 77, “in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolour transition,” she says.
The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra is led by award-winning American conductor Ryan Bancroft, who is chief conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra as of this season.
