Stephanie Gonley - violin / director
Grieg - Holberg Suite
Pachelbel - Canon
Schubert - Adagio and Rondo
Vivaldi - The Four Seasons
This delightful programme opens with Grieg’s Holberg Suite, the composer’s 19th century re-working of a tuneful 18th century dance suite. Pachelbel’s famous and much-loved Canon is very popular not only in its original version for three violins, cello and harpsichord, but also in various commercial transformations, while Schubert’s Adagio and Rondo for violin and orchestra is a mini violin concerto which brims with Viennese tunefulness. The programme ends with Vivaldi’s masterpiece, The Four Seasons, a baroque virtuoso tour de force for which Stephanie Gonley and the ECO have been acclaimed both here and abroad.
