Is there a better-known or better-loved violin concerto than Mendelssohn's? Following her two solo Late Night Proms and Proms Saturday Matinee appearance with Apollo's Fire, violinist Alina Ibragimova returns to perform this inventive and charming work with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. The orchestra also presents music by the young Norwegian Ørjan Matre and a new work inspired by Norse mythology by Russian-British composer Alissa Firsova. This season's series of three Stravinsky ballets written for the Ballets Russes reaches a tumultuous climax with The Rite of Spring, as ferocious and exhilarating a musical assault now as it was at its notorious Paris premiere over a century ago.
