If you have the opportunity to arrive a bit early at tonight’s concert, be sure to attend Andrew Manze’s pre-concert talk.
He is a masterful verbal advocate of the art-form, with the same wit and enthusiasm he displays on the podium. His selections focus on two monumental innovators of the early Romantic: Carl Maria von Weber and Hector Berlioz.
After the interval, Lawrence Power’s considerable violistic artistry comes into play, first in Weber’s Andante and Hungarian Rondo, a work that blends gypsy passion, humour and virtuosity.
In Harold in Italy, the viola portrays a melancholic dreamer in an evocative collection of orchestral scenes: from the mountains and evening prayer to an intoxicating celebration amongst ruffians.
