Classical Season 2019/20 | RNS Presents
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Friday 4 October, 7.30pm
- Vasily Petrenko conductor
- Sergej Krylov violin
- Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
- Liadov Baba Yaga
- Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
- R Strauss Tod und Verklärung (Death and Transfiguration)
- Stravinsky Symphony in Three Movements
Vasily Petrenko and the RLPO want to tell you a story.
Meet Baba Yaga, the Russian witch who flies in a pestle and mortar. Or Richard Strauss: a young artist imagining the infinite, in dazzling orchestral sound. And then there’s Igor Stravinsky – celebrating the end of the Second World War amid the bright lights of Hollywood, in a supercharged symphony like no other.
And at the heart of it all is one of the most astonishing of young Russian violinists, in Tchaikovsky’s gloriously tuneful concerto.
Holy Moly & The Crackers plus support from GGAllan Partridge
Friday 4 October, 8pm
Holy Moly & The Crackers make riotous party music for the masses. Their newest album, Take A Bite is a concise, passionate take on folk, blues and indie rock.
Their party-like live show has toured the UK and Europe across festivals and venues, including an acclaimed set at Glastonbury in 2017.
“Seeing Holy Moly & The Crackers was not attending a gig, it was immersing yourself in a show. It was circus, it was sideshow, it was international, but most of all it was bloody exhilarating” – Rockshot Mag
