Mendelssohn - Hebrides Overture (Fingal’s Cave)

Kristine Balanas , violin
A regular guest conductor with the Hallé, Ben Palmer opens this concert of classical greats with Mendelssohn’s evocative Hebrides Overture; inspired by the composer’s memorable visit to Fingal’s Cave, it conjures up the sights and sounds of Scotland. Award-winning Latvian violinist Kristine Balanas performs one of the greatest works written for the violin, Tchaikovsky’s striking Violin Concerto. Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony draws this programme to a close. Beginning in sombre mood, the work gives way to a surprising lightness and its unbounded finale is filled with unrestrained joy.
