Sainsbury Royal Academy Soloists; Clio Gould violin
Schubert and Tchaikovsky
- Sainsbury Royal Academy Soloists
- Clio Gould violin
Directed by Clio Gould, distinguished soloist and leader of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Sainsbury Royal Academy Soloists comprises the finest young string players from the Royal Academy of Music.
Their programme pairs Mahler’s shrewdly judged arrangement of Schubert’s ‘Death and the Maiden’, created in 1896, with the folk-like charm and energy of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence.
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
- String Quartet in D minor D810 'Death and the Maiden' (arr. Gustav Mahler)
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)
- Souvenir de Florence Op. 70
