Kew Sinfonia Summer Concert 2024 – St Paul’s Church

22 June @ 7:30 pm BST

Kew Sinfonia is a Chamber Orchestra comprising professional and talented amateur musicians who regularly perform together in the local community under Musical Director, Conductor Daniel Hogan, and Leader Catherine Schofield.

Programme:

Tchaikovsky Orchestral Suite No 1

Prokofiev Violin Concerto No 2

Kodály Dances of Galanta

The evening will begin with Tchaikovsky’s Orchestral Suite No 1. Although similar to much of Tchaikovsky’s previous musical output, this piece also shows many signs of the composer still to come. Unconstrained by the boundaries of a full symphony, the suite is written with a more free approach.

For their second work, Prokofiev’s second violin concerto, Kew Sinfonia are privileged to be working again with talented soloist Laure Chan. Don’t miss the chance to hear this brilliant multi-award winning violinist, who has recently been hailed as a rising star by BBC Music Magazine and on Classic FM’s “30 under 30” list in 2024. The Prokofiev is in turns full of hauntingly beautiful lyricism and also wildly frenetic with thrilling, percussive Spanish dance music and a fiendishly difficult solo violin part.

Kew Sinfonia finish the evening with dance music from Hungary as they play Kodaly’s Dances from Galanta, drawn from an anthology of gypsy folk music. Kodaly’s clever orchestration explores the broad scope of the orchestra’s range, encompassing a gorgeously lush, rich string sound and charming melodic wind parts. Evoking images of rural countryside, beautiful sweeping tunes give way to whirling, fast dance rhythms, bringing to mind colourful costumes and exuberant traditional dance entertainment.
