Benedict Holland - violin

Beethoven - Violin Concerto
Sibelius - Symphony No.2

Tonight we offer two of the most popular works of all time. The tonality of D major is explored across both.

We are delighted to welcome back Benedict Holland to perform Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. Benedict has led most of the premier orchestras in the UK and abroad, and joined us at two days’ notice in 2019 to perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to rapturous acclaim.

The concert closes with Sibelius’s magnificent Symphony No.2. Widely regarded as Finland’s greatest composer, and credited with developing the Finnish musical identity, Sibelius composed his 2nd during a visit to Italy in 1901. Today it remains perhaps his most popular symphony, moving in tone and mood from uncertainty and darkness to a blaze of light and conviction.
