Bruch Violin Concerto No.1 (23')
- INTERVAL - (20')
Strauss An Alpine Symphony (51')
Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider conductor/violin
Richard Strauss boasted that he could depict even a knife and fork in music. So when he set out to paint the full majesty of the Bavarian Alps, the results were... well, hear for yourself as Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider and a super-sized Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra scale the summit of the mighty Alpine Symphony. There are waterfalls, glaciers, an ear-splitting storm – and that’s after our multi-tasking guest maestro plays the solo violin in Bruch’s unashamedly romantic Violin Concerto. It was one of Strauss’ favourite pieces, and one of ours, too.
Alpine Symphony will be performed against a backdrop of magnificent landscape shots by award-winning photographer and mountaineer Ben Tibbetts.
