About the event

For some of the best tunes ever written – or borrowed – look no further. In his symphony ‘From the New World’, Antonín Dvořák wove the spirituals and plantation songs of America into music of intense warmth and spontaneity but just a touch of sadness and longing too. Before that, a true aristocrat of the violin, Maxim Vengerov, plays the radiant song of love that is Max Bruch’s first violin concerto, where the weave of a single instrument floats, battles and rhapsodises against an orchestral mass that supports and cajoles. The concert opens with the first performance of Alexander Dakin’s Sinfoniettaunder our Conducting Fellow, Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey, selected from our 2020 Composers’ Workshop.

Supported by Dr Michael Peagram
