We welcome Tasmin Little back to The Anvil as part of her farewell to the concert stage.
The concert begins with Martucci’s beautiful nocturne. Brahms’ violin concerto is built on a symphonic scale. He replaced the original middle two movements with one of his most beautiful adagios, and the finale is a vigorous Hungarian dance. Prokofiev’s lively Classical Symphony takes Haydn’s symphonies as its affectionate model, successfully updating the form to the early twentieth century. Rimsky-Korsakov was captivated by the dash and glitter of popular Spanish musical themes, and worked several of them into the striking and piquantly orchestrated piece that closes this concert.
