Firebird’s next concert on 28 October brings us a programme of fantastic music from Austria and Germany…
We dive headlong into this concert with Mozart’s vivacious overture to his opera The Marriage of Figaro followed by Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto – one of the most popular and frequently performed violin concertos in history. We conclude with one of Beethoven’s more light-hearted symphonies which he fondly referred to it as ‘my little Symphony in F’.
Did you know…
Mendelssohn also wrote another virtuoso violin concerto when he was between the ages of just 12 and 14 – at the same time he also produced 12 string symphonies! This violin concerto was ‘rediscovered;’ by Yehudi Menuhin in 1951.
Virtuoso soloist Emmanuel Bach (left) describes his mission as communicating through music and to bring music to wider audiences. He will be doing just that on 28 October when he brings Mendelssohn’s famous Violin Concerto to life.
