Violin Concerto in D
Mock Morris and Molly on the Shore
Ballet from the Perfect Fool
Overture to Rienzi
The excitement and sense of invention that informs the orchestration of Grainger and Holst, and the youthful Romantic sweep of Wagner’s overture to his early opera, Rienzi, are certain to be enjoyed as attractive works in their own right. However the pure beauty, majesty and compositional perfection of Beethoven’s violin concerto, a work that easily stands amongst the greatest of all concertos ever written, occupies a rarefied musical and spiritual level that is completely its own.
*This concert was repeated on Sunday June 27th at 2.30 pm at Ivanhoe Girls Grammar School, Performing Arts Centre, Ivanhoe
