Our second visit by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales combines three wonderfully colourful works, starting with Berlioz’s passionate love scene from his Romeo & Juliet. One of the UK’s most talented and highly regarded violinists, Chloe Hanslip, then performs perhaps the most popular of all violin concertos, Bruch’s lyrical masterpiece. In the second half the orchestra perform Rimsky Korsakov’s exotic orchestral tour de force, Scheherazade, with its wonderful musical depiction of Sinbad’s ship on the sea, the Bagdad festival and the Tale of Prince Kalendar.
