Schubert Rondo in A for Violin and Strings, D.438
David Fennessey Hirta Rounds
Dvořàk Serenade for Strings, Op. 22

Schubert’s Rondo for Violin and Strings is a masterpiece – virtuosic, fresh, lyrical, infused with love and reflects his admiration for Mozart. Unfolding slowly, Katherine Hunka’s playing unfurls and ecstatically sings before a light-hearted rondo finale. The ICO revisit David Fennessy’s ethereal Hirta Rounds which evokes nostalgic memories of Scottish islanders being forced to leave their homes of many centuries. A barren rock of ruins is the sole reminder of a once vibrant community. Dvořák’s sunny and genial Serenade for Strings was composed in twelve days and is one of his best loved works. A rich melody and optimistic mood are at the heart of this life affirming serenade. This ICO showcase is another romp of pure, unadulterated joy!

“The enchanting Schubert Rondo is by no means the most felicitous of violin works, yet Hunka makes it sound utterly radiant, producing a subtly inflected, silvery purity enhanced by a magical instinct for cantabile and flawless intonation” – BBC Music Magazine *****
