STRAVINSKY Symphonies of Wind Instruments
BRAHMS Double Concerto for Violin and Cello in A minor, Op. 102
FRANCK Symphony in D minor
Robin O’Neill – conductor
Zsolt-Tihamér Visontay (Philharmonia Concertmaster) – solo violin
Timothy Walden (Philharmonia Principal Cello) – solo cello
Continuing our Brahms series, Trinity Orchestra presents an exciting and varied evening of music conducted by Robin O’Neill.
We’re thrilled to welcome, as soloists in Brahms’s Double Concerto, Zsolt–Tihamér Visontay and Timothy Walden, respectively Concertmaster and Principal Cello of the world-renowned Philharmonia Orchestra. The concerto was Brahms’s last orchestral work and was an unprecedented pairing of these instruments, blending intimacy and grandiosity to create a charming and surprising masterpiece. This is a rare opportunity to hear it performed by two of the world’s most outstanding string players.
In complete contrast, the wind and brass sections of Trinity Orchestra will perform Stravinsky’s strikingly original Symphonies of Wind Instruments. Dedicated to the memory of Debussy, it is an edgy and incisive work, full of varied tonal colours.
Completing the concert is the radiant Symphony in D minor by César Franck – a radical fusion of French and German musical traditions, and one of the most significant French works of the late 19th century.
Join us for a pre-concert talk at 7pm through which you can learn more about the evening’s music.
