Mahler arr Britten ‘What the Wild Flowers Tell Me’ from Symphony No 3
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No 7
Thomas Søndergård Conductor
Maya Iwabuchi Violin
Some pieces are classics for a reason, and from sweet, songful opening to dazzling finish, every note of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto simply glows. The RSNO’s very own Leader Maya Iwabuchi is the soloist tonight; a tuneful centrepiece to a concert that begins in Mahler’s Alpine meadows and ends with RSNO Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Søndergård throwing caution to the winds in Beethoven’s wildest symphony: the uproarious Seventh. Nothing prepares you for the sheer physical thrill of hearing it live in concert!
