The Jersey Symphony Orchestra‘s spring concert will be conducted by Wolfgang Heinz. Our guest soloist Gustavo Surgik will play Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto composed in 1878. It is believed to be one of the greatest works written for the violin dedicated to wealthy widow Nadezhda von Meck who became his patron.
The concert begins with The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by French composer Paul Dukas completed in 1897. It is best known from the Walt Disney 1940 animated film ‘Fantasia’ which was hugely popular.
After the interval, the Orchestra plays Mendelssohn’s 4th Symphony, also called the Italian Symphony. Mendelssohn said that is was “..the jolliest piece I have ever done, especially the last movement…”.
