Jennifer Pike violin

Dvořák left his native Bohemia in 1892, to seek new opportunities in the USA, marking one of the most productive periods of his career and resulting in his ‘New World’ Symphony, a work imbued with native American music.

Korngold’s foray into Hollywood film music can be traced through the rich powerful lyricism of his Violin Concerto, performed by British violinist Jennifer Pike.

During exile in Switzerland, Stravinsky wrote his two Suites for Small Orchestra, providing exquisite and delightful miniatures that have an infectious rhythmic drive and draw their influences from the Classical period.
