- The Sinfonia Concertante for violin, viola and orchestra (one of Mozart’s most beautiful instrumental compositions), will feature the outstanding Slovenian violinist Lana Trotovšek, who performs with the world’s best orchestras, and one of the most charismatic musicians of our time, the Ukrainian violist Maksim Risanov

W. A. Mozart: Sinfonia concertante for Violin, Viola and Orchestra in E flat major, K. 364
L. van Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67
The London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will perform a programme whose main theme is Viennese classicism, under the baton of young Russian conductor Vasily Petrenko, who has also been its artistic director since 2021. One of the solo roles in the Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola and Orchestra in E flat major, K. 364 (320d) by Mozart, will be performed by the outstanding Slovenian violinist Lana Trotovšek, last year’s recipient of a Prešeren Fund prize, who studied in Salzburg and London and has performed with some of the world’s best orchestras including the Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre (Valery Gergiev), London Symphony Orchestra (Gianandrea Noseda) and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (Rafael Payare). She will be joined by another soloist who, in the words of the critics is one of the most charismatic musicians of our time, the Ukrainian violinist and conductor and Grammy nominee Maxim Rysanov, who we can otherwise see at the most prestigious international music festivals. The programme will be rounded off by two symphonies: the first from the beginning of the 20th century, which was given the nickname “Classical” by the composer Sergei Prokofiev, and the other, the famous Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67 by Ludwig van Beethoven.
