violin and viola unite

The Royal Northern Sinfonia opens this wonderful concert with Ravel’s luminous dance suite, Le Tombeau de Couperin, a work dedicated to the memory of friends killed in battle during the First World War. Then RNS conductor laureate Thomas Zehetmair and viola soloist Ruth Killius dance, joke and pour out their very souls in Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante, before we hear the rarely performed Entr’actes from the composer’s sole incidental dramatic music, Thamos, König in Ägypten.

The concert draws to a close with another seldom-heard work, Saint-Saëns’s Second Symphony. By the end of this concert you’ll wonder why we don’t hear these works more often!
