Penderecki Double Concerto for violin and viola*
Mozart Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola
Brahms Symphony No.1
Julian Rachlin conductor/violin
Alexander Joel *conductor
Sarah McElravy viola
Mozart loved to direct his music while he played it – and that’s exactly what Julian Rachlin will be doing today, as together with Sarah McElravy he performs what might be the finest concerto Mozart ever wrote. Then he conducts Brahms’s epic First Symphony, a stirring musical drama of tragedy and ultimate triumph. And although Rachlin doesn’t compose his own music, we’ve got the next best thing: a double concerto written specially for him by Poland’s foremost living composer.
