Two vigorous and powerful works frame the concert programme: Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro and Beethoven’s dance-like Symphony No. 7. In the middle is Mendelssohn’s much-loved and very influential Violin Concerto, performed on this occasion by brilliant rising star Madalyn Parnas.
Closing the season is a performance of Mendelssohn’s spectacular Violin Concerto, featuring star young violinist Madalyn Parnas. Parnas makes her debut with the LPO this season, after having established herself as an award-winning soloist in America. She also performs chamber music with her sister in their ensemble Duo Parnas, which has won multiple awards and released a number of critically acclaimed CDs. Also on the programme is Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro, written for string quartet and string orchestra, this work really displays the performers’ virtuosity.
Closing the afternoon is Beethoven’s rousing Symphony No. 7, renowned for it’s dramatic tension and dance-like rhythms, and used to great effect in the film The King’s Speech.
