Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D major Op 77 - Johannes Brahms
Kew Sinfonia is joined by Michael Foyle for a performance of the Brahms Violin Concerto. Michael has gained an international reputation as an outstanding soloist with reviews including:
'Playing of compelling conviction'- The Daily Telegraph, 'Foyle's playing is remarkable' - BBC Music Magazine, 'Full of sparkling detail, with tonal beauty and incisive rhythmic clarity, balancing wit and poetry' - The Strad, 'Superlative ... astonishing ... an unwaveringly engaging performance'- Seen and Heard International.
Hans Gal's Idyllikon is a light and charming orchestral work - a perfect foil to the intensity of Brahms.
