Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with Christian Kluxen

Mendelssohn Overture, Scherzo and Nocturne from A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Berlioz Selection from Les nuits d’été 

Tchaikovsky Symphony No 6, Pathètique

Following a sold-out Mahler 4 in 2013, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra returns to open the 2017 Festival under the baton of young Danish conductor Christian Kluxen. Mendelssohn’s music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream takes us deep into the Athenian woods, sprinkled in fairy dust and bathed in moonlight, setting the mood for Berlioz’s beautiful song-cycle, performed by soprano Kari Postma.

Tchaikovsky’s Pathètique symphony is undoubtedly one of the masterpieces of the orchestral repertoire, with each of its four movements charged with orchestral drama and passion.
