BARBER Overture to The School For Scandal
BRUCH Scottish Fantasy
DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 5 in F Major

Conductor Laureate of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and Honorary Conductor of the Copenhagen Philharmonic, Lan Shui, makes his RPO debut. Samuel Barber’s first-ever composition for full orchestra, the Overture to the School for Scandal, is brilliantly orchestrated and artistically unique. One of America’s foremost violinists, Stephen Jackiw, joins as soloist for Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, a piece which draws inspiration from the tunes of Scottish folk songs. The basis of folk music is echoed in the second half of the program in Dvořák’s Symphony No. 5, a piece that exemplifies the composer’s deep-rooted connection to the melodies and rhythms of his native Bohemia.
