BBC SSO - Beethoven, Bruch, Tchaikovsky
BBC SSO/Martyn Brabbins and Jack Liebeck (violin). Beethoven: Coriolan Overture. Bruch: Violin Concerto No 2. Bruch: Konzertstuck. Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture.
Live from City Halls, Glasgow
Presented by Jamie MacDougall
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and regular collaborator Martyn Brabbins are joined by soloist Jack Liebeck to explore some of Max Bruch's lesser-known works for violin and orchestra: his Violin Concerto No. 2 and Konzertstück. Both works are as full of passion and melody as the famous First Concerto, and sure to come to life under such dedicated interpreters.
And the evening is framed by two stalwart works of the concert platform which have dramatic geneses: Beethoven's pulsating overture 'Coriolan' written for a German play concerning that Roman leader; and Tchaikovsky's Shakespearean Fantasy-Overture 'Romeo and Juliet'.
