The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott Friday 4 April 2014

Friday September 15th, 7.30pm

Paul Herriott revisits one of the highlight concerts by the National Symphony Orchestra during their 2016-2017 season. One of the world's greatest violinists, Daniel Hope, takes centre stage for Mendelssohn's rapturous Violin Concerto. His recording of the work was lauded as 'technically impeccable but still passionate, singing and mercurial' (The Times) so expect fireworks aplenty. Mendelssohn's evocatively theatrical Hebrides Overture and the tumultuous, ultimately sublime lyricism of the Fourth Symphony by Brahms complete a programme of 19th-century masterpieces.
Mendelssohn: Hebrides Overture

NCH lobby fixtures, Tomas Clancy and Raymond Blake, make short work of Prokofiev and confess to a taste for early Soviet cinema, though only when watched in the small hours via Youtube.
