Canadian violinist James Ehnes's trademark eloquence arises from his jaw-dropping technical command, serene lyricism and unfaltering musicality.
His programme includes works that resonate fully with his artistic soul, from the yearning lyricism of Debussy's late Violin Sonata to the impassioned melancholy of Elgar's Violin Sonata in E minor.
