Dvořák Slavonic Dances from Op. 46
Khachaturian Masquerade Suite
Borodin Symphony No. 2

Our programme is inspired by the spirit of the dance. While Dvořák did not use any actual folk melodies in his Slavonic Dances, they are characteristic of traditional dance types, such as the Polka, full of wit, energy and beautiful melodies.

Armenian composer Khachaturian arranged the music he wrote for a play to form the popular Masquerade Suite, including a swirling Waltz, energetic Mazurka and a furious Galop.

Often considered to be his masterpiece, Borodin’s Symphony No. 2 brims with lively rhythms, exciting orchestral colour and the exotic melodies of Russian folk music.
