Reviews & Ratings
Andrew Shulman, conductor
Nigel Armstrong, violin
Mozart - Symphony No. 29 in A major, K. 201
Mozart — Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major, K. 216
Walton — Sonata for Strings
Mozart completed his Symphony No. 29, characterized as a “combination of an intimate, chamber music style with a still fiery and impulsive manner,” (Stanley Sadie) at the age of 18 and his Violin Concerto No. 3 a year later. Barely in his twenties, violinist Nigel Armstrong, a recent graduate of The Colburn School’s Conservatory of Music, is hailed by music director Jeffrey Kahane as “a phenomenal talent…who will be making a big mark on the music world.”
Directing this display of youthful brilliance is LACO’s multi-faceted principal cello Andrew Shulman, who also maintains a thriving conducting career. Following appearances with such venerable ensembles as the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and Sweden’s Jönköping Orchestra, Shulman makes his LACO conducting debut with this program.
The evening concludes with a virtuosic gem by the British composer William Walton, who also wrote the coronation march for King George VI, the monarch popularized in the Academy Award®-winning film _The King’s Speech.
Admired for his “nuanced and impassioned playing,” (Salt Lake Tribune) Andrew Shulman has gained renown as a conductor. The Daily Telegraph praised his interpretation of Britten’s Four Sea Interludes as a “wonderfully atmospheric performance that caught changing moods splendidly.”
Nigel Armstrong “is a genius, and we don’t use the word lightly. How he got that way…it’s just his life, he says. A life we’ll likely be watching.” (Sonoma Magazine_) He is “fascinating to watch” with “splendid, fearless technique.” (_San Francisco Classical Voice)
