Music: Mendelssohn Violin Concerto \ Zehetmair
Hot news from da radio is that Northern Sinfonia Thomas Zehetmair is remaining in his post at the orchestra for the next few years. Until 2014, I think. I only say ‘I think’ because I can’t remember for sure. I must be reasonably sure, I know. I did tweet it, after all.
I heard that piece of reasonably juicy arts news on Performance on 3 on – yes, I know what you’re thinking – BBC Radio 3 this evening, shortly before I heard the very same man take on the role of soloist for Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. I’m still not entirely sure whether I enjoyed it or not. I may have done. It did make me think a bit, that’s for sure.
