Haydn Symphony No.44 in E minor Trauer
Mozart Violin Concerto No.4 in D K.218
interval
Fauré Nocturne
Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings in C Op.48

The European Union Chamber Orchestra is an orchestra with the spirit of a string quartet – a crack team of superb young players, united by the sheer joy of making music together.

You can hear it in every note, with critics raving over their “warmth of sound, the elegance of phrasing and the razor-sharp focus of their ensemble”. Tonight, they bring all their signature verve to a truly passionate programme. Fauré’s moonlit Nocturne, and one of Haydn’s darkest, most heartfelt symphonies prepare the way for warmth, wit and unchained melody of Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings – Russian music at its most relaxed and elegant.

National treasure Tasmin Little joins the EUCO as first among equals in the sparkling Fourth Violin Concerto by the composer whom Haydn considered his greatest friend, and whom Tchaikovsky loved above all others – the teenage Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Champagne for the ears!
