Jacques Cohen Conducts EAChO featuring Susanne Stanzeleit
Mendelssohn & Vaughan Williams
The East Anglia Chamber Orchestra return to The Apex in Bury St Edmunds and to The West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge with a delightful programme of romantic music. Under the baton of the distinguished Jacques Cohen, the concert will begin with the little known but delightful Fair Melusina Overture.
Mendelssohn was very fond of his depiction of the fairytale mermaid. The orchestra is then joined by Susanne Stanzeleit for the incomparable Violin Concerto, Mendelssohn’s last and his most popular large scale work. Renowned as a soloist and chamber musician world-wide, Susanne Stanzeleit is well known for her unusually challenging and extensive repertoire and has received many rave reviews for her recordings.
The Fifth Symphony by Vaughan Williams is the quietest and most romantic. Written during the Second World War, it was dedicated to Jean Sibelius but largely influenced by the composer’s own opera, The Pilgrim’s Progress. Join us for an exciting and inspiring evening of music making.
