Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra of Sweden
Two contrasting works are featured by tonight's visiting orchestra. They are
Concerto and Arvo Part's Third Symphony (UK premiere). The latter is introduced by a documentary film on Part, the Estonian composer born in 1935, whose individual style has catapulted him to popularity in the west over the last few years. The Third Symphony, dedicated to tonight's conductor, fellow Estonian Neeme Jarvi, marks a transitional stage to a new direction, explored with the help of the Hilliard
Ensemble. To start the programme, the world-famous Taiwanese violinist
Cho-Liang Lin , who made his public debut at the age of 7 and now lives in the USA, plays Mendelssohn's ever-popular Violin Concerto in E minor.
