Now time for some music by Felix Mendelssohn's good friend, Prince Albert (i.e. Queen Victoria's husband).… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Sadly, our Principal Artist Vladimir Jurowski has had to withdraw from this week’s concerts in Valencia, Madrid and at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, London, due to illness.
However, we are pleased that Thierry Fischer has stepped into the breach to replace Vladimir. Thierry was the Principal Conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and has since revitalised the Utah Symphony, taking them for to Carnegie Hall in New York for the first time in 40 years.
The concert programme remains the same, and Alina Ibragimova will still perform as the violin soloist.
Elgar Serenade for strings
R Strauss Violin Concerto in D minor, Op.8
Sibelius Symphony No.2
