Nicholas Collon conductor
Nicola Benedetti violin
Tom Service presenter
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No. 7
One enduring memory of recent BBC Proms performances is the joyful double act of conductor Nicholas Collon and broadcaster Tom Service leading an interactive guide to Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ Symphony. This concert brings them together again to introduce the composer’s Seventh Symphony. Wagner famously described it as the ‘apotheosis of the dance’ and so it’s appropriate that the Aurora Orchestra, playing the entire symphony from memory, will be free to unleash its rhythmic power with some choreographic touches of their own. The first half of the concert brings the first of two visits this season by stellar Scottish violinist, Nicola Benedetti. Her passion and dynamism are given plenty of room for expression in Mendelssohn’s 1845 Violin Concerto, the first major concerto for the instrument since Beethoven’s and no less revolutionary, recasting the relationship between the soloist and orchestra to irresistible effect.
