RNCM Symphony Orchestra with Garry Walker
RNCM Concert Hall, 16 December 2011
A concert graced by three sumptuous pieces of music.
Emily Howard’s exquisite Solar was the preamble to Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D major Op 35, Bing Xiang ably taking the violin for this performance.
After the interval, the audience were treated to Elgar’s Symphony No 1 in A flat major Op 55, a marvellous silvery epic. The trumpets were so red you could bathe in them.
No complaints at all to any of this, in fact a thumbs-up to the whole concert. It was a joyous evening all around.
