Conductor: Giordano Bellincampi
Violin: James Ehnes

Strauss: Metamorphosen
Bruch: Violin Concerto No.1
Schumann: Symphony No.3 ‘Rhenish’

The superstar violinist James Ehnes is absolutely not to be missed. His APO return with Bruch’s evergreen concerto, with its dramatic opening and spirited finale, will be a highlight of the season.

Schumann’s ‘Rhenish’ Symphony was inspired by the country of the River Rhine and by Cologne Cathedral. It was a particularly happy time in Schumann’s life, and this shines through in buoyant, ebullient music.

In contrast, Strauss’s indescribably moving tone-poem for 23 solo strings is a lament for the destruction of civilised Germany in World War II.
