The Ghosts of War

About the event KELLY Elegy for Strings ’In Memoriam Rupert Brooke’ SCHUMANN Violin Concerto in D minor BARTOK Concerto for Orchestra, BB 123 Jessica Duchen presenter Alena Baeva violin Marios Papadopoulos conductor It’s one of the strangest stories in the history of music: could Robert Schumann’s lost violin concerto really have been discovered by means of a seance nearly 100 years after the composer’s death? Novelist and music journalist Jessica Duchen picks up the story as we hear Schumann’s rich and unusual concerto courtesy of Alena Baeva, making her debut with the Orchestra. Before that comes an equally heartfelt elegy by Frederick Septimus Kelly, a Balliol graduate killed in the Great War with his own connection to the Schumann seance. And to finish, one of the great orchestral showpieces of the twentieth century: Bartok’s spicy and spectacular Concerto for Orchestra.

Concert time: 7:30pm
