Tchaikovsky       Romeo and Juliet: overture-fantasia

 

Jack Liebeck violin

Martyn Brabbins conductor

 

Max Bruch is best known for two works he composed for violin and orchestra, the popular First Concerto and the Scottish Fantasia. Here, Jack Liebeck plays the Second Concerto which, like the Scottish Fantasia, was dedicated to the great Spanish violinist Pablo de Saraste.  The performance is complemented by a rare chance to hear the Konzertstück for violin and orchestra which Bruch composed more than thirty years later.  Martyn Brabbins brings the evening to a close with the lush sounds of Tchaikovsky’s Shakespearean fantasy overture: Romeo and Juliet.  The concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
