Sinfonia VivaClassical Music
Frank Zielhorst conductor
Chloë Hanslip violin
Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings
Barber Violin Concerto
Mozart Symphony No. 41 ‘Jupiter’
Dutch conductor, Frank Zielhorst, makes his Nottingham Debut as Sinfonia Viva’s new Principal Conductor with this richly melodious programme. Tchaikovsky wrote his exquisite Serenade for Strings in the same year that he wrote his 1812 Overture but he considered it much the better piece, its charm and warmly expressive style a conscious nod to Mozart, whose music he much admired. Mozart’s last and grandest Symphony was completed nearly a century earlier and its scale and exuberant energy earned it the nickname ‘Jupiter’, in recognition of the qualities it shared with the Romans’ chief god. At the heart of this performance is Samuel Barber’s lush and lyrical Violin Concerto, performed by the outstanding young British violinist, Chloë Hanslip. It was Barber’s first concerto and he clearly relished the opportunity, expertly blending singing lines with high drama. The concluding moto perpetuo is a breathless whirlwind, racing by in four exhilarating minutes and testing every sinew of the soloist’s skill.
Free pre-concert talk, 6.30pm in the auditorium: Katy Hamilton explores Mozart’s Symphony No. 41.
