Dmitri Liss, conductor
Sergej Krylov, violin
Rossini - From La Gazza Ladra: Overture
Paganini - Violin Concerto No. 1
Rimski-Korsakov - Sheherazade
Rimsky-Korsakov composed his own symphonic Scheherazade, rife with uplifting melodies and orchestral splendour. It remains to this day one of the most beloved classical pieces for orchestra. It just as well fits chief conductor Dmitry Liss and the South Netherlands Philharmonic like a glove, with an especially grandiose role for the concertmaster. Before the intermission, however, all the spotlights are on Sergey Krylov’s violin. This Russian enchanter’s playing blew us away last season with Paganini’s Caprices that he had up his sleeve as encores! And of course, now he returns with yet another Paganini: the First Violin Concerto.
To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
