About the event


To Breathe Now*


Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 26


Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68

Maxim Vengerov violin 

Marios Papadopoulos conductor

Hannah Schneider conductor*

It took Brahms 14 years to write his first symphony, but it was worth the wait. The piece launches with a compelling edifice of climbing strings, plunging winds and pounding drums. What follows is a work of gripping turbulence, deep conviction and exuberant joy. Before the Brahms, we welcome a friend and true aristocrat of the violin Maxim Vengerov to play the radiant song of love that is Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, where the weave of a single instrument floats, battles and rhapsodises against an orchestral mass that supports and cajoles. To open, a new work from Grace-Evangeline Mason, joint winner of our 2019 Composers' Workshop.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21:35

Tickets: £28.00 £18.00
