Conductor Giordano Bellincampi
Violin Grace Clifford
Hoey New Work (World Premiere)
Sibelius Violin Concerto in D minor
Tchaikovsky Symphony No.4 in F minor
At the height of the Romantic era, composers poured the emotions and feelings from their own life circumstances into their music.
The result was music of great beauty and passion that still speaks as directly to us today. Violinist Grace Clifford will transport you into the world of Jean Sibelius with his finger-busting but evocative Violin Concerto. This will be followed by Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.4, a piece which begins with the sound of 'fate' in the brass, and moves to orchestral triumph in the finale. We are also delighted to premiere a work by one of our own musicians, violist Bernard Hoey.
