  1. Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D Op 61 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  2. Symphonia domestica Op 53 - Richard Strauss

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, written quickly in the middle of an intensely creative period, begins with five strokes of the timpani, and unfolds from this simple beginning into the greatest of all concertos for the instrument. A noble and lyrical work, it set the pattern for the great violin concertos of the nineteenth century. Strauss’s Sinfonia domestica uses his home life – children playing, a quarrel and reconciliation with his wife, dreams and cares at night – as the starting point for a work which overflows with imaginative and exuberant music. Written just before his operatic career exploded with the scandalous success of Salome, it’s tended to be unfairly overshadowed.

Pre-concert talk, 6.30pm - The Forge
