Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture (“Fingals Cave”)
Brahms Violin Concerto

Schumann Symphony no. 3 in E-flat (“Rhenish”)

Mendelssohn was Schumann’s greatest advocate and Schumann the man who told the world of Brahms’ genius.  Together these three Romantic masters offer the soundtrack for the ESO’s historic return to Malvern Theatres.

‘Hanslip has remarkable depth. And she has the technique to support every musical expression. As impressive as her handling of such technical issues was, it was her ability to ‘sing’ out the long melodic lines that was most memorable. The fast final movement exploded with energy”  Virginia Review

“In ‘the Rhenish’, Woods holds his own against such wonders as Sawallisch, Celibidache, Giulini and immediately becomes a favourite for this delectable work.” – ClassicalSource
