Conductor Stanley Dodds
Violin Chad Hoopes

Schmidt Intermezzo from Notre Dame
Barber Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, Op.14
Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances, Op.45

Variety is the spice of life, and so it is in this performance. Schmidt’s Intermezzo originated from a neglected but once successful opera adapted from Victor Hugo’s Notre Dame de Paris – better known as The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Be moved by this insightful portrait of the beautiful gypsy heroine whose compassion gives Hugo’s novel its emotional heart. Then, be prepared to switch gears as Barber’s Concerto opens with Chad Hoopes' violin singing a beguiling theme. Noted for its sincerity and power to instantly involve the audience, this is a brilliant showpiece that has become one of the most frequently performed of all 20th century concertos.  Lastly, tap your toes to the Symphonic Dances, Rachmaninov’s final work, full of lush orchestration and rhythmical pizzazz.

Co-presented by Queensland Symphony Orchestra and QPAC.
