Rossini: Overture from L’italiana in Algeri
Bruch: Violin Concerto No. 1
Brahms: Symphony No. 4
Renowned conductor John Curro AM MBE takes the orchestra to new heights with Brahms’ Symphony no. 4 and Bruch’s Violin Concerto, featuring soloist Hugh Won. Mr Curro is the founder and director of the Queensland Youth Orchestra. He has inspired thousands of young musicians throughout his career as a conductor, teacher and performer, and under his leadership, the QYO is regarded as one of the world’s finest youth orchestras.
Back in 1992, under the baton of Mr Curro, the then 17-year-old violinist Hugh Won performed the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the QYO in the finals of the National Youth Concerto Competition and emerged as the winner. Hugh has since gone on to perform with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, tour internationally with the Australian Youth Orchestra, and appearing as a soloist for the Gold Coast Chamber Orchestra. In this special reunion, Hugh and John will perform together again after 24 years. They will bring another favourite, the beautifully romantic Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1.
