Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra

White Nights

Liadov Baba-Yaga (03')
Shostakovich Violin Concerto No.1 (36')
- INTERVAL - (20')
Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade (47')

Vasily Petrenko conductor
Simone Lamsma violin 
We're grateful that Simone Lamsma has kindly stepped in to perform in these concerts, replacing Sergei Dogadin who has unfortunately had to withdraw.A jealous sultan, his beautiful, intelligent wife, and a thousand and one nights of fantasy. Sounds like a lot to put into music, but in Rimsky-Korsakov’s  Scheherazade, a violin becomes the storyteller as the orchestra paints a world of thieves and genies, shattering storms and birds the size of houses. Hear for yourself, as Vasily Petrenko conducts one of the all-time Russian classics, and welcomes back Simone Lamsma in Shostakovich’s gripping First Violin Concerto.
