Petite Suite for Orchestra DEBUSSY
'The Clock' Symphony No.101 in D Major HAYDN
Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, D Major, Op.77 BRAHMS
UWE GRODD Conductor
MARK MENZIES Violin
Debussy's 'Petite Suite' invites its listeners on a journey of delight, from evoking within us the romance and joy of sailing on a little boat, to the glamour and playfulness of a lady and her charming retinue, all with a sparkle and sensual nostalgia.
Inspired by his journeys of London, Haydn's 'The Clock' Symphony takes its name from the rhythmical pulse of the bassoons and strings in the second movement, bringing to mind the incessant ticking of a timepiece.
Written for his friend the violinist Joseph Joachim, Brahms combined a unique sound quality, with a melodic, beautiful lyricism and a fiery Hungarian-style finale for his Violin Concerto.
Proclaimed in the Los Angeles Times as an 'extraordinary musician' and 'riveting violinist', Mark Menzies has played extensively across Europe and the United States, including a series of performances in New York's Carnegie Hall. We are thrilled to have Mark join the MSO for the first time, for this challenging and expressive work.
