The initial phase of the concert was performed by the strings with the Concerto grosso “Palladio” by Karl Jenkins. The first movement of the piece, the Allegretto, is known from an advertisement spot. Conductor Wolfgang Reß chose a not too quick pace, so that the listeners were able to fully enjoy the music.


In the second movement, the Largo, the two solo violinists rose slowly from the string ensemble. The elegically sounding theme which Franziska Strohmayr interpreted with


great sensitivity was answered by a consoling note in Sandro Roy’s impressing performance. Both soli merged into a joint performance full of confidence which continued into the third movement, the Vivace.

Violinist Franziska Strohmayr, music student in London at the moment – also multiple prize winner – carried away the audience with Camille Saint Saens’ Rondo Capriccioso, wonderfully played, with great sensitivity and technically brilliant. With her warm, soulful sound she succeeded in matching flawless technique with ardent feeling. Camille Saint Saens would have applauded.
