Brahms Concerto for Violin and Cello in A minor, Op 102
A programme of wind, waves and forest murmurs from Sweden’s dynamic 35 piece orchestra Västerås Sinfonietta opens with Mendelssohn’s vivid evocation of the surging seas around the Isle of Mull. The God of the west wind in Greek mythology was the spark for Andrea Tarrodi’s tone poem Zephyros, while Dvořák’s spell-binding Silent Woods grew from his duet series From the Bohemian Forest. Brahms, who retired to the mountains and lakes to compose each summer, is represented by his Double Concerto, with two eminent soloists, including Turner Sims Associate Artist Lawrence Power, as guests.
