About the event

The world-famous Royal Philharmonic Orchestra opens the festival with a programme of joyful, romantic music. Finzi's Introduction to Love's Labours Lost (written for a production of Shakespeare's play) sets the tone for the whole week. Acclaimed French pianist Elizabeth Sombart joins the orchestra for Chopin's Second Piano Concerto with its slow movement of great beauty inspired, apparently, by the composer's love for another. Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony encapsulates the composer's love affair with Italy, full of exuberance and sunshine.
