American Classical Orchestra: Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelssohn

Krista Bennion Feeney, violin
American Classical Orchestra
Thomas Crawford, conductor


Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No 8
Mozart: Symphony No 35 ‘Haffner’

Krista Bennion Feeney (NY Times 2014 – ‘just the right mixture of refinement and rusticity’) performs the legendary Mendelssohn Concerto on a historic violin with the same configuration as that of Mendelssohn’s concertmaster Ferdinand David in 1845. Mozart’s thrilling Haffner Symphony and the Beethoven Eighth round out the opening night concert of the ACO’s 30th Season conducted by Thomas Crawford.

The Mendelssohn Violin Concerto is the most famous of all violin concerti. Krista Bennion Feeney is concertmaster of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and a frequent guest at ACO. Her violin was made in 1809 and has the distinction of having never been modernized. Thus, this violin has the same proportions, materials, and sound as that of Ferdinand David, Mendelssohn’s concertmaster at the Gewandhaus Orchestra. For this concert, the ACO string section will use the type of gut strings that were used by Mendelssohn, providing a unique window into his actual sound world.

The virtuosic Beethoven Eighth Symphony has a panoply of compositional devices that delight audiences and challenge musicians. Mozart’s Haffner Symphony is among his most high-spirited works, known for its brilliant overture and singing melodies.

Jennifer Pike and Tom Poster

Jennifer Pike, violin
Tom Poster, piano

W A Mozart: Sonata in G, K301
Thomas Hyde: Sonata for violin and piano Op 14 (world premiere)
J S Bach: Partita No 2 in D minor for solo violin BWV1004 (movements from)
Eugene-Auguste Ysaye: Sonata No 6 for solo violin in E major
Ralph Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending, Op 50
Miklos Rozsa: Variations on a Hungarian Peasant Song, Op 4

Little Missenden Festival

We open with two of this country’s most brilliant young performers.

Vaughan Williams originally wrote The Lark Ascending for piano accompaniment. The lark’s exquisite ascent sounds even more ethereal than in the later orchestral version we’re used to.

The delightful Sonata in G is the essence of Mozart – effortlessly melodious, charming yet profound. A sprightly and joyous opening, then a gracious dance with a reflective minor key Sicilienne at its core.

Some of the finest music was written for solo violin – Bach’s solo sonatas and partitas are miracles of expression. Jennifer plays movements from his great D minor Partita.

Bach’s intellectual intensity and Paganini’s brilliance inspired violin virtuoso Ysaye’s fine but rarely heard solo sonatas. The 6th, rhapsodic and dazzling, vibrates with the passion of a Habanera.

Thomas Hyde’s three-movement violin sonata (world première), written for Jennifer Pike, was inspired by Philippe Petit’s 1974 tightrope walk between the Twin Towers.

These charming Variations on a Hungarian Peasant Song show Miklos Rozsa’s great affection for his native folk music.

Jennifer Pike is an exciting talent – youngest BBC Young Musician of the Year (2002), then a New Generation Young Artist. “Dazzling interpretative flair and exemplary technique” (Classic FM)

Tom Poster’s piano playing has won him many prizes, and many admirers. The Guardian called him a “young lion” of the piano.

“His versatility and unerring sense of what works best marks him out as a musician’s musician and everyone in the business should be beating a path to his door” (MusicWeb International)
