  • English Chamber Orchestra
Stephanie Gonley
director/violin

Violinist Stephanie Gonley has been the ECO’s much-loved leader since 1991 and she joins them as both soloist and director in this varied programme.

She performs Mendelssohn’s lesser-known D-minor Violin Concerto, written when the composer was only 13 and reintroduced to the public by Yehudi Menuhin in the early 1950s, and Schubert’s virtuosic Rondo, a piece considered to be the composer’s concerted masterpiece.

Bartók’s Divertimento, a work composed in just 15 days before the composer fled Europe for America, and Suk’s Serenade, the result of Dvořák telling him to write ‘something cheerful for a change’, complete the programme.
