In this concert, we travel from the caves to the woodlands with three different-yet-brilliant pieces.

Inspired by a basalt sea cave, Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides reminds us of the sea and solitude, before one of the leading violinists of his generation, Barnabás Kelemen, exploits the instrument’s versatility and brightness in Mozart’s Concerto No.4.

Admire the conversational flurries between the soloist and the orchestra during this piece before being transported into a world of Medieval pageantry, knights, woodland and wild dancing with Bruckner’s epic Romantic Symphony No.4.

Bruckner’s marvels of timbre and his fondness for the French horn permeate this work, which may be why many believe this piece influenced John Williams’ theme for Star Wars.
