Wagner Overture to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg
Sibelius Violin Concerto
Nielsen Symphony No. 2, ‘The Four Temperaments’
Stephen Brearley conductor
Nathan Mierdl violin
The Doctors’ Orchestra
Postponed from the day of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, The Doctors’ Orchestra returns to play in support of Freedom from Torture once again, presenting a largely Nordic programme featuring works by Sibelius and Nielsen.
The brilliant young virtuoso Nathan Mierdl, a multiple prize-winner including in the 2018 Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition, joins the Orchestra for Sibelius’ rhapsodic and unmistakably Finnish concerto, of which Tovey wrote, ‘I have not met with a more original, a more masterly and a more exhilarating work than this.’
Nielsen’s Second Symphony, written four years before the Sibelius, wittily portrays the four classical temperaments – choleric, phlegmatic, melancholic, and sanguine – but in colourful and truly symphonic style.
These two works are preceded by Wagner’s glorious, if not Nordic, Overture to The Mastersingers.
This event will also be live-streamed.
