Programmes

Gilbert Varga has been Principal Conductor of the Taipei Symphony Orchestra since 2013. His atmospheric opening with The Hebrides Overture takes us to Scottish island of Staffa and Fingal’s Cave, which Mendelssohn visited on his travels. Afterwards you will hear the Spanish pianist Javier Perianes in Robert Schumann’s A minor Concerto. Following these two initial romantic treats, Tchaikovsky’s ‘Pathétique’ provides a symphonic climax.
