Haydn Symphony No.104 ‘London’
Korngold Violin Concerto
Rebecca Miller conductor
Georgia Hannant violin
London: a bustling metropolis whose brilliant, diverse population provide an endless stream of creativity. Sound familiar? Haydn traveled from Vienna to London ready to embrace a city teeming with modernity. Here, as our musicians converge for their own musical adventure, the orchestra provide Haydn’s final, pioneering symphony with a theatrical new context.
Korngold journeyed from Vienna to Hollywood to embrace the emerging artform of film. He helped define the sound still heard in cinemas today – sophisticated symphonic music bursting with romantic energy. In his Violin Concerto, filmic power meets mighty virtuosity from the soloist.
