Sit with the music’s quiet, delicious tension for a minute or two and be rewarded with a gorgeous section of cascading string melodies followed by a surge of invigorating music. Before you know it, you’re beautifully engrossed in Rachmaninov’s sweeping love story.
Dvořák’s Violin Concerto is just as moving, the music ranging from jubilant to elegiac and back again. Stunning Canadian violinist Karen Gomyo, 'a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance and intensity' (The Chicago Tribune), will bring her remarkable artistry to the emotion, and draw out the down-to-earth folk melodies of Dvořák’s native Bohemia.
Conducted by Australian Daniel Carter, who returns home after enchanting audiences across Europe, this will be an experience that goes straight to the heart.
