MARSH | Symphony No. 6 in D (1796)
LALO | Fantaisie Norvegienne for violin and orchestra Op. 20
SCHUBERT | Symphony No. 5
RUN TIME: 1 HR 30 MINUTES
Our second concert of the indoor Masterworks season features Fantaisie Norvegienne by Eduardo Lalo played by Ukrainian guest violinist Vladyslava Luchenko. This gem of a work is nestled in between John Marsh’s Symphony No. 6 in D and Schubert’s Symphony No.5. A contemporary of Haydn, John Marsh wrote in a classical gallant style. While Schubert’s Symphony No.5 looks forward to the romantic era, Lalo’s language is Romanticism at its best. Beginning violin at the age of five, Luchenko made her solo debut with the Kiev Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of eleven. Today she performs on a Francesco Gobetti violin of 1710, on loan from a private collection.
From an early age Vladyslava Luchenko developed a deep love for music and she was from the beginning keenly aware of wanting make it her life’s dedication. Vladyslava was admitted at the age of seven to the Lysenko Music School for highly gifted children in Kiev where she studied until 2006. Read More.
