All Beethoven Concert

18:30, Friday 06 March 2015

Beethoven wrote a single violin concerto and it has gone on to become one of the great works of the repertoire. As well as providing a dazzling vehicle for the virtuoso soloist it is a work of truly symphonic ambition and musical argument for the soloist and the orchestra. This is perhaps not surprising as it was written  in an astonishing burst of creativity that also produced the epic 5th symphony and this concert's other work : his sixth symphony. 

Bartok, Shostakovich & Ravel

18:30, Sunday 10 May 2015

Maurice Ravel proved himself to be a great composer over many genres with his deeply expressive music. The Suite no 2 of music from his opera Daphnis & Chloe is a work of great elegance, colour and musical beauty. The concert begins with Bella Bartók's Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, a work where the composer divides the strings into two antiphonal. In between is the Shostakovitch's last instrumental concerto - the work he wrote as a birthday present for the great David Oistrakh.
