Beethoven Overture Egmont
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
Dvořák Symphony No 9 New World

Beethoven’s Overture to Egmont never fails to impress, and its blazing intensity has delighted audiences ever since its Viennese premiere in 1810. Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is a work of breathtaking originality packed with wonderful tunes that generate passion, rapture and virtuosity. With memorable tunes Dvořák’s New World Symphony pulses with energy drawn from his American experiences in New York and evokes the composer’s longing for his native Bohemia.
