Programme Note

Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is possibly the most popular work ever written for violin, with glorious melodies displaying the soloist’s virtuoso technique.

Britten’s Sea Interludes are scene changes from his opera Peter Grimes, and he always intended for them to be published separately.

Hindemith sketched a series of movements based on themes by Weber to be used in a ballet for a dance company, but the ballet never came to fruition.

Cristian Grajner De Sa began violin and piano lessons at the age of seven and since then has enjoyed performing in recitals and as a concerto soloist on the violin. He has appeared as a String Finalist in the televised BBC Young Musician of the Year 2012 competition.
