Joshua Bell takes centre-stage in his calling card, Tchaikovsky’s thrilling Violin Concerto. Full of explosive musical acrobatics and fiendishly difficult technical passages, this unabashed showcase is widely regarded as the pinnacle of the violin repertoire. Prokofiev’s neoclassical “Classical” Symphony opens the concert, blending the Russian’s twentieth-century colour with Haydn’s eighteenth-century classical form. Completing a popular programme is Mozart’s “Great G Minor Symphony”, containing one of the most instantly recognisable classical melodies ever written.
