About This Event

John Storgårds was the first Finnish violinist to record Schumann’s unusual Violin Concerto, but he now steps to the podium, making way for Austrian violinist Thomas Zehetmair.

Surrounding Schumann’s gem of a concerto are the first UK performance of Jörg Widmann’s ethereal Armonica, the storm-tossed Prelude from Sibelius’s eerie depiction of Shakespeare’s island realm and Carl Nielsen’s landmark symphonic vision of good’s triumph over evil.
