Jaroslaw Nadrzycki performs Bruch's Violin Concerto No 1 | London Philharmonic
In Max Bruch’s radiant Violin Concerto, it’s a single instrument that captures you – the weave of one violin as it floats, battles and rhapsodises against an orchestral mass that sometimes supports, sometimes cajoles and sometimes contradicts. Sibelius’s Second Symphony, by contrast, sees the orchestra striving as one, discovering a hymn-like tune that it proclaims with inspiring unity and breadth, as if lifting the entire ensemble far beyond the sum of its parts. Opening the concert the Orchestra celebrates the work of John Ireland with his vibrant London Overture. Reminiscent of Elgar's Cockaigne Overture, it evokes sleepy London mornings and the bustling city streets of the day. Mark Fitz-Gerald and the brilliant young Polish violinist Jaroslaw Nadrzycki come to Eastbourne for what promises to be a truly inspiring concert.
