Silver & Gold - Master Series 1

Mark Wigglesworth - Conductor
Akiko Suwanai - Violin

Johann Strauss - Emperor Waltz
Korngold - Violin Concerto
Brahms - Symphony No 2

A Viennese hot chocolate in musical form. Start at the top with the decadent cream of a Strauss waltz, sip on the tantalising sweetness of Korngold, and delight in the rich flavours of Brahms. All this served up by the ASO’s regular guest Mark Wigglesworth, with violinist Akiko Suwanai joining us for the first time.


Korngold brought a piece of Vienna with him when he fled Nazi Germany for Hollywood. His 1945 Violin Concerto brims with the best qualities of his film music: full of sweeping romantic tunes, and with a dash of American pizzazz.


Brahms’s Second Symphony is all blue lakes, green fields and distant mountains. He had spent 15 years writing the First Symphony – but his Second needed little more than a summer holiday in southern Austria, where the composer found “so many melodies flying about that you must be careful not to tread on any”.
