  1. Trails - Marcello Palazzo
  2. Concerto for violin and orchestra in E minor Op 64 - Felix Mendelssohn
  3. Symphony No 9 in C, 'Great' D 944 - Franz Schubert

From its monolithic opening theme kick-starting a cycle of inexorable momentum like a giant pendulum, to the breathless dash of its finale, Schubert’s Symphony No 9 of 1828 offers one of the most riveting journeys of any symphonic work. Along the way he appears to push at the boundaries of his age with grinding harmonies, protruding limbs and unstoppable waltz like rhythms. No wonder it attracted the title ‘Great’. Marios Papadopoulos conducts Schubert’s final symphony here having been joined by a true violin great, Janine Jansen, for the radiant song that is Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. The concert opens with a world premiere of a work selected from last year’s composers’ workshop, conducted by the composer himself.
