Bruch Violin Concerto with Sophie Rowell

Saturday 23 March 2024, 7.30pm

James Tatoulis Auditorium - MLC - Kew

Zelman Symphony's first program in The Year of the Violin

Zelman Symphony’s first concert features Melbourne Chamber Orchestra’s Artistic Director, Sophie Rowell, performing Bruch’s beloved First Violin Concerto. Sophie is the former leader of the Australian String Quartet and was until recently co-concertmaster of the MSO.

The concert commences with Leonora Overture no. 3 to Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio. This is the heroic and dramatic Beethoven at his best.

The concert concludes with Schumann’s final and best loved symphony, the Rhenish, presenting a gloriously romantic picture of the magnificent river Rhine.
