Hear conductor Elim Chan bring to life some of the most memorable melodies ever written in tonight’s evocative programme.
Bruch’s Violin Concerto is arguably the composer’s greatest work – and for good reason. The ultimate test of virtuosity for any soloist, it offers excitement and emotion in equal measure, delivered this evening by rising-star violinist Noa Wildschut.
To close, a dramatic musical journey in Rachmaninov’s final completed piece. His Symphonic Dances are filled with breathtaking energy throughout, though there is tenderness too: at their heart lies a wistful melody for solo saxophone that lingers long in the memory.
