"The Romantic"

DCO's tenth concert opens with the tuneful and captivating symphonic peom Phaéton by Saint Saens.

Howard Hanson was one of America's leading symphonists, and the pinnacle of his achievement is widely thought to be his Second Symphony, with its broad romantic sweep that justifies its subtitle "Romantic".

Hungarian-born Viennese composer Karl Goldmark continues this theme with the highly melodic piece that cemented his fame – his Sakuntala Overture.

And no programme with a "romantic" theme could end without Tchaikovsky's immortal Fantasy Overture: Romeo and Juliet - full of tunes you'll go home humming.
