Haydn Symphony no47 in Eb The Palindrome
Mozart Violin Concerto no5
Mozart Symphony no29
Emily Sun violin
Stacey Watton conductor
Nicknamed ‘The Palindrome’ due to the 3rd movement (which is played forwards, then backwards!) and combined with Mozart’s Symphony no29, this concert is a perfect representation of the ‘classical’ era at its best. Mozart was a violinist of reasonable skill, and each of his violin concertos seems to have been originally composed for his own use (and then revisited for the more skilled violinist Antonio Brunetti); a perfect vehicle to showcase Bromsgrove International Young Musicians Competition winner, Emily Sun.
