Violin Amalia Hall
Suppé Poet and Peasant: Overture
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
Schumann Symphony No.4
Suppé’s overture from Elmar’s comedy Poet and Peasant (Dichter und Bauer) is one of his most popular works with around 60 arrangements for different instrument combinations.
Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto was famously described as “unplayable” when it was first composed. Today it is recognised as one of the peaks of a violinist’s repertoire. Talented New Zealand violinist Amalia Hall is bound to prove the early critics wrong as she takes on this giant concerto.
To round off the evening Schumann’s fascinating Fourth Symphony. The first draft of which was written in a rush of creativity in just over a week, in a particularly happy phase of his life.
