Passion of Youth

 Carlos Miguel Prieto  Conductor 
 Esther Yoo  Violin
 BBC National Orchestra of Wales   
 Beethoven  Leonore: Overture No. 3  
 Bruch  Violin Concerto No. 1 
 Walton  Symphony No. 1 

Works that combine deep romantic lyricism with thrilling rhythmic charge.
From its galloping beginning, Walton's first symphony bristles with energy and, despite its darker inner movements, finishes with cinematic pomp and glory. Bruch's shares the same dance and drive, with one the most beautiful slow movements in the repertoire. Beethoven, master of rhythm and drama, sets the tone with his feisty overture.

BBC NOW Pre-Concert Talk
DISCOVER MORE: Bruch’s violin concerto
Level 1 | 2pm - 2.30pm

Violinist Esther Yoo will join us to look at why Bruch's violin concerto has stood the test of time and is still his most popular work - and for some, the only work known of his, even though the composer dearly wished for broader recognition.

This event is free for concert ticket holders.
