Tamsin Waley-Cohen

Thursday 16 June 2022
Cheltenham Town Hall, 19:30

Mendelssohn The Hebrides Overture, Op. 26, ‘Fingal’s Cave’
Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 26
Beethoven Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 36

Tamsin Waley-Cohen violin
Marios Papadopoulos conductor

Before Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ came his first breakthrough symphony. The composer’s Symphony No. 2 is packed full of innovation, all of it concealed deftly under a joyous veneer of wit, lyricism and playful energy. This fascinating and ever-engaging symphony is heard after a piece every bit as spontaneous and open-hearted: the song for violin and orchestra that is Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, played here by the ‘fearless’ (The Guardian) virtuoso Tamsin Waley-Cohen. Mendelssohn’s vivid musical postcard from Scotland opens our jovial return to Cheltenham Town Hall.
