Isca Ensemble Spring Concert 28 March 2020 with JOO YEON SIR - violin - Elgar Violin Concerto

JOO YEON SIR  makes a welcome return to Sidmouth to play with the Isca Ensemble.


Elgar : Violin Concerto in B minor Op 61
Copland : Rodeo Suite
Marquez : Danzón No 2


Elgar : Violin Concerto. The concerto was composed for the violinist Fritz Kreisler, who gave the premiere in London in 1910, with the composer conducting. Plans by the recording company His Master's Voice to record the work with Kreisler and Elgar did not reach fruition, Instead, the composer made a recording with the teenaged Yehudi Menuhin that has remained in the catalogues since its first release in 1932.

Aaron Copland : Rodeo was composed in 1942 as a ballet to be choreographed by Agnes de Mille for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. To capture the national spirit of the subject, Copland drew directly from the well of American folk song, which was an obsession of American musicians at the time. Buckaroo Holiday, Corral Nocturne, Saturday Night Waltz and the famous Hoe-Down feature in this wonderful suite for full orchestra.

Arturo Márquez : Danzón No. 2 is a symphonic work based on a Cuban dance and music style also called danzón. Though it is a concert work, it has the warmth and engaging energy of dance music.

Your selection will be reserved for up to 20 minutes whilst you provide your contact and payment details for final booking.
