Beethoven One
Marwood and the SSO Fellows

British violinist Anthony Marwood directs the SSO Fellows in Beethoven's First Symphony and a gorgeous modern violin concerto.

There couldn't be a better showcase for our talented SSO Fellows than Beethoven's 'Grand Sinfonie'. Composed at the dawn of his symphonic career, it bursts with youthful vitality and optimism. Virtuoso Anthony Marwood has a reputation with the SSO for giving brilliant performances of contemporary violin concertos – he's a champion for the voices of our time. And in 2017 he brings Distant Light by Peteris Vasks. Full of attractive moments and infused with the folk sounds of Peteris Vasks' native Latvia, this concerto is 'food for the soul', comforting and optimistic with a touch of nostalgia. 'Childhood memories,' says Vasks, 'but also the glittering stars millions of light years away.'

‘‘Marwood...played the solo part with empathetic intensity, capturing a sound of distinctive isolation and beauty.’’
