The MSO is delighted to present Hitoshi Suzuki’s inaugural concert with the orchestra as their new Principal Conductor!
Congratulations to Hitoshi who has freshly graduated from Brussels Conservatoire with a Master’s Degree in Orchestra Conducting and what better place to start a long and successful relationship than with an exuberant programme including the immortal lyricism of Mendelssohn’s ever popular and effervescent Violin Concerto followed by the headlong irrepressible rhythmic energy of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony!
The concert will open with Rossini’s popular overture to his opera The Italian Girl in Algiers of 1813, renowned for it surprises and controlled “crescendi”, so typical of it composer.
The orchestra welcomes Sara Trickey as soloist in the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. Sara enjoys an exciting and diverse career as a solo violinist and chamber musician. She performs at many of the major UK festivals and venues and has performed most of the repertoire for violin and orchestra, with, among others, the City of London Sinfonia and the Orchestra of St John’s. Mendelssohn’s concerto was premiered in 1845 by Ferdinand David, a close friend of the composer. Its characteristic youthful exuberance has ensured its well-earned place in the repertory.
Premiered in 1813, the Beethoven’s “Seventh” has also always earned its permanent place in the repertory, with its 2nd movement particularly enjoying popular status, most recently as the soundtrack to the film The King’s Speech.
