Lehár -Gold and Silver Waltz
Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto
Mahler - Symphony No. 1 'Titan'

Local soloist and rising star, Freya Goldmark, makes her Rutland Sinfonia debut in May with Mendelssohn's ever popularViolin Concerto, premiered in 1845 and considered one of the first Romantic era concertos.

The concert begins by taking us to the Viennese ball to hear Lehár's glittering 'Gold and Silver' waltz and concludes with a performance of the first of Mahler's massive symphonies, originally called 'Titan'. This is a work of great contrasts from the ethereal beginning evoking nature, to the funeral dirge of Frère Jacques on a solo double bass, the lively Scherzo and the heroic finale with the horn section standing with their bells up for extra dramatic effect!
