Petr Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet, overture-fantasy
Alexandra Dariescu has dazzled audiences and critics alike with her musical prowess and here appears in Boulanger’s rare Fantasia. Stravinsky’s Pulcinella, based on the characters of the Italian commedia dell’arte, and Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, inspired by the eponymous Shakespeare play, immerse the listener in the world of grand narratives. Lindberg’s Gran duo is a dialogue for brass and woodwinds. Tianyi Lui, who débuted with the TFO in January 2020, returns to conduct.
