East Anglia Chamber Orchestra

Michael Foyle visits Cambridge to play Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto

Saturday 25th January

7:30 pm

The East Anglia Chamber Orchestra returns to West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge with another attractive programme – a programme that will make your heart feel like dancing. Under the baton of the extremely talented Jacques Cohen, the programme begins with the Dances of Galanta by the Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály. The piece combines brilliant orchestral colour with folk song and lively gypsy dances.

We are then joined by the fabulous Michael Foyle for the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto. One of Tchaikovsky’s most popular works, the concerto was written in the most difficult year of the composer’s life but is unfailingly lyrical and full of virtuosic joy. It is difficult not to tap your toes along with the last movement.

Our programme concludes with the lively Scottish Symphony. Mendelssohn wrote his third symphony after an extended trip to Scotland and had originally intended to include bagpipes. The performance in London was so successful that the composer asked Queen Victoria if he could dedicate it to her. The symphony is considered to be his greatest symphonic work.

Join us for an evening of exciting and delightful music making.
