DVOŘÁK Violin Concerto (32’)
SCHUBERT Symphony No 9 ‘The Great’ (48’)
ROBIN TICCIATI – Conductor
CHRISTIAN TETZLAFF – Violin
Schubert’s ‘Great’ C major Symphony, completed shortly before the composer’s untimely death, was his final contribution to the genre. Conceived on the broadest scale – Schumann praised its ‘heavenly lengths’ – the Symphony combines the monumental with the intensely lyrical – a reflection perhaps of the main strands in mature Schubert. Dvořák’s Violin Concerto was written for the greatest nineteenth-century violinist, Joseph Joachim. For some reason Joachim never performed it publically. However, the work is an appealing amalgam of traditional concerto style and Czech colouring and, as performed by the award-winning Christian Tetzlaff, it should persuade all of its place in the repertoire.
