Conductor Douglas Boyd
Violin Amalia Hall

Elgar Introduction and Allegro
Saint-Saëns Violin Concerto No.3
Beethoven Symphony No.6 ‘Pastoral’

The dynamic Scottish conductor Douglas Boyd returns with a programme of pure pleasure. Elgar’s carefree Introduction and Allegro gives the APO strings a moment in the sun.

The prodigiously talented New Zealand violinist Amalia Hall made her début with the APO at the age of nine. She joins us for Saint-Saëns’ delightful champagne concerto.

Getting out of Vienna and into the country was vital for Beethoven, and in this piece he pours his love of nature into ever more magnificent music: singing of birds, streams, a storm with thunderbolts and lightning, and the rainbow after the downpour.
