Serenade for Strings in E flat major, Op. 6

Natalia Lomeiko violin

Kypros Markou conductor

Dvořák knew his star pupil and son-in-law Josef Suk would write something wondrous, if only he could be persuaded to move away from dark minor keys. In 1892, Suk delivered his Serenade for Strings, a work whose spontaneous lyricism and emotional depth took even his teacher by surprise. After American Arthur Foote’s own warming Serenade, our Concertmaster Natalia Lomeiko and conductor Kypros Markou introduce an atmospheric work by the Greek composer Athanasía Tzánou and take on Mendelssohn’s lesser-known Violin Concerto in D minor. Written when the composer was just 13 years old, this work of extraordinary maturity shows why Mendelssohn is considered one of history’s greatest musical prodigies.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21:45

Tickets: £45.00 £35.00 £20.00 £15.00
