Dreaming away to Beethoven, Mendelssohn and John Williams

In this concert, Pieces of Tomorrow presents a classical dream program, performed by the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Chloe Rooke. Chloe was recently appointed assistant conductor of the orchestra, winner of the Edo de Waart Assistant Conductorship and representative of the newest generation of conductors taking the orchestral world by storm. As usual with the Pieces of Tomorrow series, classical is here shrouded in modernity. We start a little later, your drink may be brought in, we give an introduction to the program and DJ St. Paul hosts. Finally, the experience is enhanced with visuals.

In this relaxed atmosphere, enjoy the music Mendelssohn created to Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream - a mysterious dream world full of fairy-like playfulness. Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, like all his symphonies, is a world unto itself. The radiant and cheerful first movement is followed by an intimate funeral march, which can also be heard in the wonderful film The King's Speech starring a stuttering Colin Firth. Uncrowned king of film music is John Williams. Think Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, Indiana Jones and Fiddler on the Roof, to name just a few titles. From those, some beloved examples can be heard in these Pieces of Tomorrow.
