FCO 15th Anniversary Gala

Fremantle Chamber Orchestra is thrilled to be able to celebrate its 15th anniversary with the internationally renowned Dutch violinist Rudolf Koelman. Mr Koelman’s ability to touch listeners’ hearts from the first to the last note is unreached. “simply stunning”, “sublime”, “moved to tears”, “truly magic” are just some authentic listeners’ comments.  Indeed Mr Koelman is the only violinist ever who has recorded live all Paganini Capricci (the pinnacle of violin playing), winner of the prestigious Edison Music Award, Jascha Heifetz’s last active student and plays on the Woolhouse Stradivarius. 

Mendelssohn’s beautifully melodic Fair Melusine Overture leads directly to Saint-Saëns’s Violin Concerto No3, a romantic master piece. “Le verre siffleur” was composed for FCO by Ollivier-Philippe Cunéo(FCO’s first conductor in 2005) in memory of the Paris terrorist attacks, with one of the most exquisite moments in music. Contrasting and complementing follows a rarely played Mozart jewel, his very early 6th symphony.
