KODÁLY Dances of Galánta
BRUCH Violin Concerto No.1
BRAHMS Symphony No.1
Jamie Phillips conductor | Simone Lamsma violin
Gifted with innate musicality, Jamie Phillips opens this concert with Kodály’s lively Dances of Galánta, a work that recalls the composer’s youth and immortalises the small Hungarian market town which once boasted a famous gypsy band. At the heart of the concert is a Romantic showpiece, Bruch’s First Violin Concerto, with its wonderful introduction, meltingly beautiful Adagio and breath-taking finale. It’s played by the Dutch violinist, Simone Lamsma, who has rapidly established herself as one of the most sought-after soloists on the circuit. Brahms struggled as he wrote his First Symphony, a process that took some nineteen years, though it was well worth the wait. This uplifting masterpiece established him as the true heir and successor of his great hero Beethoven.
