This event has been and gone.
Nielsen Symphony No. 1
Programme to include:
Joseph Haydn: Symphony No.82 (Bear)
Ludwig Van Beethoven: Violin Concerto
Carl Nielsen: Symphony No.1 in G minor
Tonight's concert celebrates the work of three great symphonists at the height of their creative powers.
Nielsen's First was memorably described by one critic as 'a child playing with dynamite,' and if Haydn's The Bear finds the old Master composing with a youthful pizzazz and energy, Beethoven's Violin Concerto possesses a radiant lyrical expansiveness.
One of the top orchestras in the UK. Since its formation in 1945 it has made thousands of recordings, as well as giving over 100 concerts per year.

Russian-born world class violinist who studied at the Central Music School of Moscow and at the Moscow Conservatoire. Her extraordinary virtuosity captured international attention when she won first prize at the 1980 Sibelius Competition in Helsinki and the Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1982. 'Among mainstream big-name violin soloists, Viktoria Mullova is rare in her enthusiasm for period style and historical practice' (The Sunday Times) 'Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata is one of the miracles of the repertory... and is here freshly re-imagined by Mullova' (The Observer) 'This new Viktoria Mullova release will probably raise as many hackles as it does roars of approval' (The Daily Telegraph, May 2010).
