Exciting young British violinist Matthew Trusler joins the orchestra as soloist for Mathias’s neglected Violin Concerto – a virtuosic celebration of song and dance.

About this event

Exciting young British violinist Matthew Trusler continues this season’s selection of more rarely heard violin concertos with William Mathias’s neglected 1991 work – a virtuosic celebration of song and dance.

He is joined by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and its former Music Director Mark Wigglesworth (soon to take the helm at English National Opera), who together also perform the exuberantly rhythmic overture to Wagner’s early comedy Das Liebesverbot and Elgar’s richly orchestrated First Symphony – itself a work steeped in the Germanic tradition of Wagner, Brahms and Beethoven.
