The Rotterdam Student Orchestra will be performing their yearly Winter Concert. The programme consists of:
Im Herbst, Edvard Grieg:
Edvard Grieg (1843 – 1907) is a Norwegian composer and pianist. Im Herbst describes the sounds of nature in the fall. From the sunny open fields to the wild autumn storms
Romeo and Julia, Tchaikovsky:
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840 – 1893) is one of the best known Russian composers from the romantic period. His fantasy overture called Romeo and Julia is a beautiful symphonic poem featuring parts of the famous Shakespeare play.
Joseph Haydn (1732 – 1809) is an Austrian composer from the classical period. He is seen by many as the father of the symphony, as we know it now. His last symphony wrote Haydn while visiting London.
