A late Romantic’s journey from Paris to Vienna – Lea Tuuri, violin
The programme includes Cinéma-fantaisie, a work originally written by Milhaud for a silent Chaplin film and forming part of the Surrealist ballet Le boeuf sur le toit. Korngold’s Piano Quintet is much in the same broad, late Romantic vein as his opera Die tote Stadt. The programme includes further opera and ballet adaptations, with music from Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, Stravinsky’s Pulcinella and Prokofiev’s Love for Three Oranges.
