Live from Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Presented by Tom Redmond

The Dresden Philharmonic performs Brahms' Haydn Variations, Dvorak's much-loved New World Symphony, and Barber's lyrical Violin Concerto.

Sarah Chang (violin)
Dresden Philharmonic
Michael Sanderling (conductor)

A rare visit to the UK from one of Germany's most distinguished symphony orchestras - directed by Michael Sanderling, its recently-appointed Principal Conductor. Founded in 1870, the Dresden Philharmonic's pedigree includes associations with some of the greatest composers of the 19th century and - in our own times - a succesion of highly illustrious principal conductors. Tonight they play two of the best-loved of all Romantic symphonic works, together with a warmly lyrical 20th-century violin concerto, a piece which has become a classic of the repertoire, played by the American virtuoso Sarah Chang.
