Music from Beethoven and Brahm, at St Michael & All Angels
A spring concert featuring the Kew Sinfonia, with violinist Michael Foyle, will take place on Saturday 15 February at 7.30pm at St Michael and All Angels Church, Chiswick.
Tickets cost £15 or £6 for students.
Overture, from Egmont Op 84 - Ludwig van Beethoven
Idyllikon Op 79 - Hans Gál
Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D major Op 77 - Johannes Brahms
Hans Gal's Idyllikon is a light and charming orchestral work - a 'perfect foil' to the intensity of Brahms.
