A programme of
EDWARD RUSHTON I nearly went, there
MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto
MAHLER Symphony No 5
Dutch violinist Janine Jansen, a former BBC New Generation Artist and a regular visitor to the Barbican, applies her nimble technique and elegant interpretative skills to Mendelssohn’s high-spirited Concerto, which never loses its freshly-minted appeal. Daniel Harding introduces a new work by the brilliant young composer Edward Rushton, while Mahler’s glorious Fifth Symphony, containing in its sublime Adagietto for harp and strings and one of music’s most passionate love-letters, rounds off this entrancing programme.
Outstanding classical violinist from Holland who first took up the instrument at the age of six, made her debut at the age of fourteen and has since played with leading orchestras around the world.
