The radio station’s list of the most popular classical pieces has come to be regarded the definitive countdown of the world’s favourite classical music.
Naturally, this has informed a programme for next Tuesday evening which is likely to have the broadest possible appeal for Lancashire music lovers.
Featured composers/pieces will include Dvořák’s Humoresque, excerpts from Romeo and Juliet by Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.
Not forgetting Elgar’s rousing Pomp and Circumstance March No.4.
Leading the orchestra in his RLPO debut will be Manuel López-Gómez – the latest star to emerge from the world famous El Sistema music education programme in Venezuela. The young musician has already acquired a reputation for conducting with great flair, so expect a vibrant show.
Tasmin Little, left – surely one of Britain’s best-loved violin soloists – will bring all her poise and charm to Dvořák’s Humoresque and Mendelssohn’s ever popular Violin Concerto.
