Under the direction of UEA Director of Music Stuart Dunlop, the 70-strong orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky’s Overture-Fantasia Romeo and Juliet, Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor Op. 16 and Sibelius’ Symphony No.1 in E Minor Op. 39.

Tchaikovsky’s Overture-Fantasia Romeo and Juliet takes us through Shakespeare’s drama in vivid musical pictures, while Grieg’s Piano Concerto Op. 16 is a dynamic and lyrical showcase for both soloist and orchestra. Sibelius’ Tchaikovsky-infused Symphony No.1 Op.39 is driven on by the Finnish composer’s own dark energy toward a final melody the equal of any in the Nineteenth Century.
UEA Symphony Orchestra will be joined in their performance of Grieg’s Piano Concerto by pianist Anna Geniushene.
