Programme Note

The orchestra is joined by soloist Tom Greed playing Mozart’s last violin concerto in A Major, which is nicknamed ‘The Turkish’ owing to its original use of the percussive sounds of the lower strings and the music becoming quite ‘wild and rough’ in the last movement!  Mozart composed music from the age of five and when he was only thirteen wrote his first Cassation in G Major, consisting of a set of short movements possibly intended for outdoor performance. 

English composer John Ireland wrote in the 20th Century and his Concertante for strings has three movements - Eclogue, Threnody, and a lively Toccata to finish.   We are delighted to be giving the first performance of Henry Zajaczkowski’s Interlude for Strings, a short piece in G Minor.
