Eastbourne residency: Wagner, Bruch, Khachaturian and Tchaikovsky

Matthew Wood conducts a varied programme including Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1

3:00 PM, ​ Congress Theatre, Eastbourne

Wagner Prelude to Act 1, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg
Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1
Khachaturian Masquerade Suite
Tchaikovsky Swan Lake (excerpts)

Matthew Wood conductor
Tianwa Yang violin

Swan Lake proved to the world that music for ballet could be as compelling and well-crafted as music for opera and concerts, and that Tchaikovsky was the man to make sure of it. Before a performance of excerpts from Swan Lake – music that has all the descriptive beauty and musical panache of Tchaikovsky at his best – Matthew Wood conducts Khachaturian's colourful picture of the St Petersburg high life and Wagner's stately Prelude to Act 1 of his only comic opera, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. To complete the programme, Tianwa Yang brings her fulsome, rich violin tone to the outpouring of seemingly spontaneous musical emotion that is Max Bruch's treasured first Violin Concerto.
