- Introduction and Allegro
- Violin Concerto No. 5 (Turkish)
- Symphony No. 5
- Pinchas Zukerman
Scored for string quartet and string orchestra, Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro was composed to show off the performers’ virtuosity. Pinchas Zukerman’s solo line will soar above the Orchestra in this expressive masterpiece.
Following on the drama is Mozart’s Fifth Violin Concerto; often referred to as Turkish, the wild, frenzied Allegro in the final movement emulates a Turkish style with melodic leaps, pounding rhythms and percussive strings.
Concluding the Festival is the instantly recognisable and much-adored Beethoven Symphony No. 5.
