Hull New Theatre, Hull
Pre-concert talk 6.15pm. With Dr Simon Desbruslais - Lecturer in Music, School of Drama, Music and Screen at the University of Hull.
Haydn - Symphony No.30
Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto in E Minor, Op. 64
Dvorák - Symphony No.8
Chloe Hanslip, violin
Returning to the Hull City Hall Classics series with Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is the ‘passionate, eloquent’ (The Independent) soloist Chloë Hanslip, who is no stranger to this favourite of romantic music in the violin repertoire.
In the second half of the concert, the Hallé Orchestra, conducted by Clemens Schuldt, will perform Dvořak’s Symphony No.8. It is a piece that is brought to life with its the lyricism and use of melody, giving a dance-like sense of joy through the woodwind and moments of provocative power in the strings. The concert also includes Haydyn’s Symphony No.30.
