Anna Clyne; This Midnight Hour (London premiere)
Benjamin Britten; Violin Concerto
Ludwig van Beethoven; Symphony No 6 in F major 'Pastoral'
Anna Clyne's 'This is Midnight' draws inspiration from two poems to take the audience on a vivid journey. Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang then offers Britten's yearning 'Violin Concerto', which was written just before World War II and opens with timpani strokes reminiscent of Beethoven's own violin concerto. Frang has made it her own and won a Gramophone Award for her recording of the work. Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony makes a wonderful complement, evocative in a very different way.
