About this event

Described by the violinist Midori as ‘so rhapsodic and so individual’, DoReMi is Hungarian composer Peter Eötvös’s second violin concerto. Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra in the UK premiere of a work first heard in Los Angeles this January.

Eötvös’s ‘world of simple things’ and the sparkling overture to Mozart’s 1786 backstage comedy of artistic tantrums and overblown egos, D*er Schauspieldirektor*, contrast with the misty melancholy of Bruckner’s great tribute to Wagner, the Seventh Symphony, its orchestration permeated by the sound of four Wagner tubas.
