Nicola Benedetti

About the event
Introduction and Allegro, Op. 47

Concerto for Double String Orchestra

Violin Concerto in B minor, Op. 61

Nicola Benedetti violin

Marios Papadopoulos conductor

We may never know whose soul is 'enshrined'? in Elgar's violin concerto according to the work's mysterious dedication, but the music suggests it must have been someone the composer loved dearly. Nicola Benedetti returns to the Orchestra for this performance of the first truly successful violin concerto from England, a piece of which Elgar himself confessed 'It is too emotional, but I love it'. Marios Papadopoulos and the Orchestra contextualise Elgar's masterpiece with his elegy-tinged Introduction and Allegro and the captivating rhythmic brilliance of his successor Michael Tippett'?s own Concerto for Double String Orchestra.
Concert time: 7:30pm
The concert is scheduled to end at 9:30 pm.
