A busy evening in store for our Artist in Association, Chloë Hanslip! After Mozart’s delightful Salzburg divertimento comes the Shostakovich 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 James Manson’s take on Handel’s violin sonata in D, Chloë ends with 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.
