Concerts from Switzerland

Kate Molleson presents concerts given by the Biel-Solothurn Symphony Orchestra and the Basel Symphony Orchestra, including Brahms' Violin Concerto and Saint-Saens' Organ Symphony.

Kate Molleson presents music from two concerts given in Biel and Basel last September. The two major works around which this programme is centred are Brahms' Violin Concerto performed by Vadim Gluzman with the Basel Symphony Orchestra and conductor Ivor Bolton, and Saint-Saens' mighty 3rd Symphony, the so-called 'Organ' symphony, performed by the Biel-Solothurn Symphony Orchestra with organist Katerina Chrobakova.
