Embark on a musical journey to the rugged Scottish coast as Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture transports you to the mystical Fingal’s Cave. Feel the power of nature’s majesty and the exhilarating waves of this composition.

Prepare to be swept off your feet by Rachmaninov’s breathtaking Piano Concerto No 2. This is one of the most passionate and beloved concertos in the repertoire, its lyricism and virtuosity charting a trajectory from darkness through idyll to dazzling triumph. We welcome back the young superstar Shan Liu as soloist who left us all spellbound and received a standing ovation after his performance in last year’s Family Concert.

Tchaikovsky declared that Mozart was ‘full of divine beauty’ and Schubert took wonder at the ‘countless images of a brighter and better world’ that Mozart was able to conjure up through his music. Mozart’s ‘Jupiter’ Symphony, the crowning jewel of his symphonic repertoire, promises a grand finale to an unforgettable evening.

ELGAR VIOLIN CONCERTO
BRAHMS SYMPHONY NO.1

UWE GRODD Conductor
AMALIA HALL Violin

A concert of the two romantic titans: Elgar and Brahms!

One of the most demanding concertos in the Violin repertoire, Elgar’s Violin Concerto is also one of the most romantic and beautiful. There is much speculation as to who was Elgar’s muse for this piece, but many believe it was for his friend nicknamed ‘Windflower’, Alice Stuart-Wortley. The violin theme ‘windflower’ is repeated throughout the work and is a wonderful descriptor for the elegance and movement of the music. The MSO is delighted that Amalia Hall will return to play the superb violin solo for this work which we know is repertoire she excels at.

Taking over twenty years to write according to Brahms, with much expectation from his friends and contemporaries, Symphony No 1 was deemed a success when first performed in Vienna and was then hailed as Beethoven’s tenth. Powerful, energetic and moving, Brahms shows us his brilliance as a composer of maturity. And thus, Johannes Brahms will forever be known as one of the three ‘B’s of classical music, in equal footing with the legendary Bach and Beethoven.
