Northern Chamber Orchestra with Chloë Hanslip
  • Thursday 1 January 1970

The Northern Chamber Orchestra’s Artist in Association, Chloë Hanslip, returns to direct and perform in a concert of delightful string music. Mozart’s captivating Salzburg divertimento opens the concert, followed by Shostakovich’s violin sonata, composed for David Oistrakh on his 60th birthday. Arranged for violin, strings and percussion by violinist Mikhail Zinman, it provides a typically powerful emotional journey ending with a monumental passacaglia. After the NCO’s principal double bass player and resident composer James Manson’s take on Handel’s violin sonata in D, Chloë ends with the 19-year-old Mozart’s D major violin concerto. This has one of his most warm-hearted slow movements, an abundance of melody together with ample opportunities for the soloist to show her virtuosity.
