Christopher Seaman: Conductor.
Anthony Marwood: Violin.
Dvorak - Carnival Overture;
Vasks - Violin Concerto, ‘Distant Lights’;
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No.4.
Dvořak’s Carnival Overture provides a lively entrée to the evening and a taste of the genius of this versatile composer. Tchaikovsky’s symphony, dedicated to his patroness, is a melodic yet powerfully emotional work. It stands as one of the greatest symphonies ever written.
A concert to appeal to the emotions, with three diverse works that reflect the nationalistic and personal sentiments of their composers.
