English Symphony Orchestra with Chloe Hanslip
February 15th 7:45 pm
English Symphony Orchestra
with Chloe Hanslip (Violin)
Conducted by Kenneth Woods
Mendelssohn- Hebrides Overture
Brahms- Violin Concerto
Schumann- Symphony no. 3 in E flat (Rhenish)
Mendelssohn was Schumann’s greatest advocate and Schumann the many who told the world of Brahms’ genius. Together, these three Romantic masters offer the soundtrack for the ESO’s historic return to Malvern Theatres.
“In “the ‘Rhenish’, ESO Conductor Woods holds his own against such wonders as Sawallisch, Celibidache, Giulini and immediately becomes a favourite for this delectable work” -ClassicalSource
“Hanslip has remarkable depth. And she has the technique to support every musical expression. With a tone that ranged from a quite full lower range to the accuracy of shimmering high notes … As impressive as her handling of such technical issues was, it was her ability to “sing” out the long melodic lines that was most memorable. The fast final movement exploded with energy”
