Hastings Philharmonic Orchestra is joined by sought after local violinist Max Baillie for this exciting concert of orchestral favourites.

The concert opens with Mendelssohn’s atmospheric concert overture The Hebrides, inspired by his 1829 visit to the Scottish island of Staffa. Its lyrical themes convey the power and stunning beauty of Fingal’s Cave and the rolling waves of the sea. Tchaikovsky’s challenging and exciting violin concerto was written in 1878 while the composer was staying on Lake Geneva. Hailed as one of Tchaikovsky’s most creative works, the music is filled with lyrical melodies suggestive of the Slavic and Russian folksong that so often found its way into Tchaikovsky’s ballets. The concert will culminate with Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony. One of his most celebrated works, the ‘Eroica’ symphony, marked the beginning of Beethoven’s innovative middle period of composition, being noted for its technical challenges as well as Beethoven’s customary energy, thematic inventiveness, musical boldness, and harmonic vibrancy.

This powerful concert is bursting with exhilarating repertoire: with first-rate performances on offer, the evening promises to be both uplifting and energising.
