Cadogan Hall
5 Sloane Terrace, London, SW1X 9DQ
United Kingdom

Conductor - Grzegorz Nowak
Cello - Dimitri Maslennikov
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances, from his opera Prince Igor, are amongst his most famous pieces, full of exotic melodies and vibrant orchestration. Cellist Dimitri Maslennikov has a special affinity for Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme, a delightful set of variations on an elegant theme inspired by Mozart. While living in America, Czech composer Dvorák was enchanted by the music he heard there, declaring: ‘These beautiful and varied themes are the product of the soil. They are the folk songs of America’. For his Ninth Symphony, Dvorák emulated this style, while also recalling the music of his homeland. The result is his most popular symphony, its famous Largo just one of many glorious moments.
