LSO/Noseda: Benedetti performs Mark Simpson

Barbican HallSilk Street, London, Greater London, EC2Y 8DS, United Kingdom

Tchaikovsky’s last symphony, Debussy’s iridescent visions, and a brand new violin concerto, performed by the one and only Nicola Benedetti.

There’s nothing to match the excitement of a musical imagination entering uncharted territory. Debussy’s musical paintings transmute light into radiant sound. Tchaikovsky’s ‘Pathétique Symphony lays heart and soul on the line, and you can almost feel the tears.

What Mark Simpson has to say to us in his brand new Violin Concerto remains to be heard – and tonight, we’ll be the very first people to hear it. This imaginative young Liverpudlian composer has a habit of thinking big, and telling it like it is. With Gianandrea Noseda conducting, and Nicola Benedetti bringing all her unrivalled charisma and communicative power, this could be something very special indeed.
