The great works of musical Romanticism always captivate and fascinate the listener. It is therefore not surprising that they continue to form a major part of the standard repertoire of most of the world’s orchestras. On this occasion, we have created a balanced programme of works from the treasure trove of Romantic orchestral music with varying degrees of familiarity, presented in interpretations by Bulgarian conductor Rossen Milanov.

The programme opens with the last of Sibelius’s seven symphonies. The work with which this great creator of Finnish musical identity concluded his symphonic opus also represents one of his successful experiments: he adapted the standard four-movement structure of the symphony to his own expression and created a magnificent symphony in a single movement! One of the (justifiably) most popular and most frequently performed Romantic symphonies is undoubtedly Tchaikovsky’s final masterpiece, the Pathétique Symphony, about which the composer wrote: “It is the best thing I have ever composed or shall compose; I have put my whole soul into this work.”

The two symphonies will be linked by Elgar’s elegiac Cello Concerto, featuring the world-renowned Serbian cellist Maja Bogdanović (1982), who works between Paris and Chicago.
