|Brahms, Johannes (1833-1897)||Violin Concerto in D major, Op.77|
|Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Ilyich (1840-1893)||Symphony no. 4 in F minor, Op.36|
Please note that Wolfgang David will now play Brahms instead of the originally advertised Mendelssohn Concerto.
Opening our concert is David Gompper’s energetic Sunburst, which depicts star formation through an explosive array of tonal colours. The fantastic Austrian violinist Wolfgang David continues the drama as he joins the Orchestra for Brahms' Violin Concerto; a work of contrasting emotions, lyricism and sensitivity.
Concluding the concert is Tchaikovsky’s magnificent Fourth Symphony; a symphony that is dominated by the opening ‘Fate’ motif, but concludes with a jubilant finale.
