Continuing with music inspired by Shakespeare, we invite you to join us on Valentine’s weekend for William Walton’s heartfelt music to Henry V and Prokofiev’s brilliant score to Romeo and Juliet. Prokofiev takes you right into the heart of the drama, from the humble, palpitating pangs of first love to the tumult of inter-family strife. The swordfights, the clandestine rendezvous, and the cries of horror and joy are all clearly delineated in this dramatic score. In complete contrast, Rachmaninoff’s simple Vocalise is a song without words - a lovely homage to romance. We also look forward to the debut of young Georgian pianist Dudana Mazmanishvili.
