WARWICKSHIRE Symphony Orchestra is tuning up for its first concert of the season.
The orchestra will be performing music by Rachmaninov, Elgar and Walton on Saturday October 14 at Warwick Hall.
Bringing together three major works from the early 20th century, the concert continues the orchestra’s long-standing relationship with violinist Callum Smart, who will perform Elgar’s violin concerto. The concert will also include Walton’s Crown Imperial March and Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances.
When it was composed in 1910, the Elgar violin concerto was one of the longest and most emotionally complex violin concertos the world had yet heard and is still renowned as one of the most difficult to play.
Callum is a regular soloist with the Warwickshire Symphony Orchestra and is quickly developing an international reputation as one of Britain’s finest young violinists.
