Shaham and the soloists will with Wigmore Hall this November for an evening that balances the justifiably well-worn with the novel. To start, we have Bach’s Violin Concerto in E Major, one of only two composed in his lifetime. It is a work of the profoundest joie de vivre, with a boundless vitality and invention only punctuated by an achingly gorgeous adagio. It will be followed by Krzysztof Penderecki’s Sinfonietta No. 1 (1992), an urgent, stabbing work that nevertheless flows with melody. The final piece, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (1720), needs little by way of introduction. It should serve as a fine showpiece for the musicians’ mastery.
