National Philharmonic - Sibelius "The Lover"

In a wonderful evening of strings, award-winning violinist Chee-Yun returns to Strathmore to play Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 4, a composition of delightful melodies and subtle wit. "Chee-Yun has not only extraordinary talent, but the poise and natural self-confidence of a seasoned veteran and born performer,” says Strings Magazine. The concert begins with Sibelius’ captivating Rakastava (The Lover), a charming suite for string orchestra. Closing the concert is Tchaikovsky’s popular Serenade for Strings. “I wrote the Serenade from inner compulsion, from the heart,” Tchaikovsky said. In fact, he added, the first movement “is my homage to Mozart, an imitation of his style.”
