Violin Concerto No1
Introduction et Rondo Capriccioso in A minor Op. 28
Symphony No. 9 in E Minor Op. 95 ‘From the New World’
Tonight sees the first concert of 2017 from our Festival Academy orchestra, under the baton, as always, of Thomas Hull and led by Ruth Rogers.
Jack Liebeck returns to the festival to play the well known Saint- Saens showpiece, and the lesser known but superb concerto by Magnus Lindberg, described by the Times as, “ (A) thrilling new addition to the violin repertoire…… as it grows and expands, the music becomes charged with a Sibelius-like sense of radiating light and excited affirmation… A complex showpiece that scorches its way on to the platform.” The concert closes with what is certainly the best known and probably the best loved symphony of Dvorak.
Here is a talent with an individual voice, confident in articulation, capable of vehemence without stridency and a lilting elegance of phrasing
The Age Melbourne
In contrast to the concert-hall projection of Perlman, Liebeck plays these miniatures with a salonesque intimacy and glowing cantabile to rival even the composer (Kreisler)
