Soloist - Alexander Karpeyev
Symphony No 3
We look forward to working with Alexander again for our performance of Grieg’s popular concerto. Bruch said that his 3rd Symphony, composed when he was 45, was based on material from 'his freshest and happiest youth'. He considered adding the sub-title 'On the Rhine" as he was living in Liverpool and nostalgic about his homeland, to which he eventually returned. The powerful overture to Die Meistersingers opens the evening.
