Tune in to the magical charms of violin and strings.

Revel in music by Bach and Handel, the towering composers of the Baroque Period. About the Chaconne, Brahms said it expressed, ‘a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings.’ Bach’s compelling and energised Suite is majestic. Stately grandeur also informs Handel’s Concerto with its glorious antiphonal effects, the period’s equivalence of stereo. Also savour the refreshing sound world of horns, oboes and bassoon. In Mendelssohn’s Concerto, the violin’s soaring melody, the orchestra’s exquisitely spun accompaniment and the astonishing pyrotechnics required from the soloist is breathtaking. Enjoy more of this composer’s flair for crafting melody and dramatic string tapestries in Sinfonia No.10.

Join us at 6.30pm in the Concert Hall for an insightful pre-concert talk. These pre-concert talks help to deepen your experience and create new pathways to enjoy the concert ahead. You can enter the pre-concert talk via Door 1.
