Tchaikovsky – Fantasy overture Romeo and Juliet
Vaughan Williams – The Lark Ascending
Mozart – Symphony No 40 in G minor

Arvo Leibur (violin)
Estonian National Symphony Orchestra
Conductor Nikolai Alexeev

Shakespeare’s tragedy Romeo and Juliet has inspired several composers to create magnificent pieces of music. Tchaikovsky’s fantasy overture is dedicated to the Russian composer Mili Balakirev who gave Tchaikovsky the idea for the work. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s perhaps best known symphony will be heard under ERSO’s principal conductor Nikolai Alexeev’s baton. The last time that ERSO played Symphony No 40 was in 1996.
Soloist with the orchestra is Arvo Leibur, principal violinist with ERSO and the Holland Symfonia, performing Ralph Vaughan Williams’ (1872-1958) The Lark Ascending inspired by English folk songs and a poem by George Meredith.
