About the Show/Event
Information for Prom 61 - Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (II) at The Royal Albert Hall, Inner London (Concert). Part of the BBC Proms. Dvorak's 'New World' Symphony, with its wistful slow movement, is the centrepiece of the second concert from the Vienna Philharmonic - a programme of Central European works that showcases the orchestra's distinctively rich sound. Andres Orozco-Estrada pairs it with the composer's colourful, folk-infused tone-poem The Noonday Witch, in which a mother's threats inadvertently summon a witch into her home. Cinematic drama is also a hallmark of Korngold's richly orchestrated and unashamedly romantic Violin Concerto, performed here by soloist Leonidas Kavakos.
Performers Leonidas Kavakos (violin).
Company Vienna Philharmonic. Conductor Andres Orozco-Estrada.
