J.S. BACH Violin Concerto in A minor
SCHOENBERG Verklärte Nacht
MOZART Exsultate, jubilate
MENDELSSOHN Symphony No.4, 'Italian'
The illustrious violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman joins the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in what promises to be an exceptional series of concerts as part of this Summer Music Festival. In the opening concert, Zukerman performs J.S. Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor.
An exemplar of the Baroque concerto, the faultless melodic lines and perfectly balanced structure of the work are a given; what draws audiences to the work, however, is the yearning melancholy of the violin, which comes across in every bar of the Concerto. Schoenberg’s tonal string sextet Verklärte Nacht, his earliest major work, was inspired by Richard Dehmel's poem of the same name. Mozart's Exsultate, jubilate and Mendelssohn’s ‘Italian’ Symphony, conclude this varied programme.
