Vasily Petrenko conductor
Tamsin Waley-Cohen violin

Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
Mahler Symphony No. 5

Vasily Petrenko’s last visit to Nottingham with the RLPO left everyone lost for words and wanting more. For this eagerly anticipated return he’s joined by one of Britain’s most exciting rising stars, Tamsin Waley-Cohen, whose eloquent, rich-toned playing makes her the perfect soloist for Mendelssohn’s songful violin concerto, arguably the most lyrical in the repertoire. Mahler’s Fifth was his breakaway symphony, leaving behind the influences of his earlier orchestral works for a world of ‘absolute music’. Determinedly unconventional, this journey from dark funeral march, to joyous finale shows the composer at his most inventive. The gestures are grand and the contrasts sharp, but there’s heartfelt tenderness, too, in the sublime adagietto, a love song in one long breath for his muse and future wife, Alma Schindler.
