Pavlos Carvalho will perform Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations and Nocturne with Chichester Symphony Orchestra.
Pavlos is an international music prizewinner, a versatile player and well known to Chichester Festival audiences.
CSO will also perform Sibelius’ Symphony No 2 and Dvorak’s The Noon Witch.
Simon Wilkins conducts.
Suitable for all ages.
The Chichester Symphony Orchestra is delighted to be back at St Paul’s Church on Saturday 9th July, and is equally delighted to welcome back our soloist, Pavlos Carvalho.
Inspired by Mozart, Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations are the closest he came to writing a full concerto for cello and orchestra, whereas the shorter Nocturne is a romantic character piece, depicting melancholic moods of the evening.
The little known Noon Witch is a rare excursion into programme music, and with the macabre witches’ dance, shows Dvorak at his scariest. Sibelius in his Symphony no 2 is touchingly optimistic about his nation’s struggle for independence, yet also depicts the enormous skies and rugged landscape.
