Stravinsky Danse Concertante
Beethoven Violin Concerto
Mozart Jupiter Symphony
Conductor Gareth Jones
Violin Benjamin Baker
Sinfonia Cymru presents a lively and exhilarating programme of music. Stravinsky's Danse Concertante, originally written for the concert stage but also performed as a one act ballet, is a great example of the composer's invigorating style. Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D Major, his only violin concerto, is a bright and lyrical piece which has become one of the most popular works for violin. Mozart's Symphony No. 41 in C 'Jupiter' was the composer's last symphony and it is often viewed as his greatest.
The concert features young New Zealand born Benjamin Baker on violin.
"A sleek-sounding young soloist; hugely impressive"
