Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

Symphonie Fantastique

Wagner Prelude to Act III, Lohengrin  (04')
Shostakovich Cello Concerto No.1  (28')
- INTERVAL (20') -
Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique  (49')

Domingo Hindoyan conductor
Anastasia Kobekina cello
We regret to announce that conductor Kahchun Wong has had to withdraw from the concert due to travel restrictions. We are delighted to announce that Chief Conductor Domingo Hindoyan will replace him.A severed head, a Witches' Sabbath and unrequited love … Berlioz didn’t call it the Symphonie Fantastique for nothing! And with the Orchestra’s unique set of full-size church bells, it’ll sound pretty fantastic tonight too. Wagner’s Lohengrin prelude is always a tough act to follow, but when cellist Anastasia Kobekina dives into Shostakovich’s Cold War thriller of a concerto, there’ll be no letting up.
