Arnold Concerto for Two Violins and String Orchestra, Op.77
Walton Symphony No.1

The Conservatoire’s 2015-16 orchestral season continues with the first of two concerts dedicated to the music of British composers. Walton’s first symphony is a volcanic eruption of passion and the perfect vehicle for the Conservatoire Symphony Orchestra to flex its musical muscles at the start of a new academic year.

Intense and emotional this promises to be an explosive and dramatic performance of a work intended to make a significant mark on the musical landscape of its time. By contrast, Malcolm Arnold’s Double Violin Concerto is lively, tuneful and immediately enjoyable, and provides a wonderful opportunity to showcase two of our talented soloists Yu-Mien Sun and Wai Lam in Birmingham, following on from their appearance at the Malcolm Arnold Festival.
