Tamsin Waley-Cohen, Violin

Sponsored By:

Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto is one of the greatest ever written. Its world premiere was given in 1881 by Adolph Brodsky, who was later to become Leader of the Hallé. Tonight’s soloist, Tamsin Waley-Cohen is one of Britain’s brightest violin stars; ‘Waley-Cohen’s playing is radiant and soaring’ said The Sunday Times. Tonight’s programme also features Berlioz’s dazzling Roman Carnival Overture, Ravel’s exotic Tzigane (Gypsy), which also features Tamsin and is packed with infectious rhythms. We finish with Mussorgsky’s dramatic, elegant Pictures at an Exhibition, complete with The Great Gate of Kiev.
