We're delighted to welcome this distinguished orchestra to The Anvil for the first time, with one of the world's great violinists. They begin with an enticing rarity from one of Japan's most popular composers of the last century, who was as much at home in the film studio as the concert hall.

Beethoven's Violin Concerto begins with five strokes of the timpani, and unfolds from this simple beginning into the most noble and lyrical of all concertos for the instrument.

Tchaikovsky's powerful Fourth Symphony begins with an arresting fanfare, said to represent the power of fate. A lyrical slow movement and pizzicato scherzo follow. In the finale, the fanfare returns to striking effect as the work drives to its headlong conclusion.
