Beethoven Coriolan Overture

Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor

Silvestrov Hymn-2001

Beethoven Symphony no 8

Tom Fetherstonhaugh, who BBC Radio 3 described as a 'spark to watch' conducts the highly acclaimed Fantasia Orchestra with soloist Jennifer Pike (violin) in a programme comprising Beethoven’s tragic Coriolan Overture, which depicts the ultimate conflict between war and peace; Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, the piece that launched Pike’s career when she became the youngest-ever winner of the Young Musician of the Year competition; Ukrainian composer, Valentin Silvestrov’s heart-wrenching Hymn-2001; and the utterly compelling Beethoven Symphony no 8, one of the shortest and most experimental symphonies that he composed.
