About This Event

Fresh from two remarkable Elgar recordings with his Staatskapelle Berlin, Daniel Barenboim launches this year's cycle of Elgar symphonies with a performance of the First – a work of thrilling emotional contrasts and a slow movement of Mahlerian richness and beauty.

He pairs it with one of the great Romantic violin concertos, once described by musicologist Donald Francis Tovey as 'more original, more masterly and more exhilarating' than any of its rivals, in which former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Lisa Batiashvili is the soloist.

Tickets for this concert are now very limited. However Daniel Barenboim is also conducting Staatskapelle Berlin in Prom 4 on Sunday 16 July. See below for more details.
