Series F2 - Wonderful Violins
In this Friday series, you will be in the company of three leading violinists of our time, and offered a rich dose of romantic orchestral soundscapes.
If there is one instrument that epitomises classical music, it has to be the violin. A great number of works have been written for this beautiful instrument, and when its warm sounds unite with the remaining strings and the full orchestra behind it, the music goes straight to your heart.
But the sound of one single violin can also fill a whole concert hall – and in this Friday series you will find three strong artistic personalities, who travel the world with their interpretations of the great concertos for solo violin: Norwegian Vilde Frang takes on Elgar’s dramatic violin concerto, and the world-renowned Isabelle Faust and Frank Peter Zimmermann from Germany showcase their remarkable grasp of Mendelssohn and Berg.
There is real orchestral romance when the Danish National Symphony Orchestra serve up dazzling symphonic masterpieces by Dvořák, Strauss and Mahler, amongst others – and in the spring, a rare guest performance by the world-famous Suisse Romande Orchestra from Geneva awaits you.
