Beethoven & Mendelssohn in Hanover Square
Thomas Carroll: conductor
Nathan Meltzer: violin
Montgomery – Records of a Vanishing City
Mendelssohn – Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64
Beethoven – Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67
A rare London appearance from violin sensation Nathan Meltzer, two of the world’s best loved pieces and our favourite newest discovery, Jessie Montgomery.
Join us at St George’s Hanover Square, on 14 September, for the launch concert of our brand new Foundation Programme series, under the baton of Artistic Director Thomas Carroll. In a rare London appearance, we welcome US violinist, Nathan Meltzer as our first ever Foundation soloist. Meltzer shot to international recognition on winning the Windsor Festival International String Competition at the age of just 16. Named by BBC Music Magazine as one to watch, his debut CD was Gramophone’s Editor’s Choice, acclaimed “stunning”. He joins us for Mendelssohn’s violin concerto, a smash hit ever since its premiere in 1845. Jessie Montgomery’s Records of a Vanishing City based on her recollections of the music that surrounded her growing up on Manhattan’s Lower East Side in the 1980s and 1990s is a fusion of Latin jazz, alternative rock, Western classical, avant-garde jazz, poetry, and Caribbean dance music, to name a few. We then conclude the evening with a work that needs little introduction – one of the most popular symphonies ever written – Beethoven’s Fifth.
