KORNGOLD VIOLIN CONCERTO
KORNGOLD : Violin Concerto (c.25 mins)
WAGNER (arr. Henk de Vlieger) : Meistersinger, an orchestral tribute (c.48 mins)
Benjamin Beilman : violin
Antony Hermus : conductor
Korngold’s glamorous, glittering Violin Concerto is an extraordinary fusion of Hollywood and Old Vienna. Quoting themes from his movie scores of the 1930s, it was a late success for a composer who’d discovered his richly romantic music was perfect for the big screen. Here it will take flight in the hands of our wonderful soloist, Benjamin Beilman. Wagner’s The Mastersingers of Nuremberg was once described as ‘the longest smile in the German language’. After his thrilling interpretation of music from The Ring in 2019, conductor Antony Hermus returns to the BBC SSO with Henk de Vlieger’s distillation of the composer’s sunniest opera, a non-stop outpouring of warmth and melody, guaranteed to melt the hardest of hearts.
