The in-demand violinist Maxim Vengerov is both soloist and conductor in this wonderful Season finale
3:00pm, Sunday 03 June 2018
Universally hailed as one of the world’s finest musicians, and often referred to as the greatest living string player in the world, Grammy award-winner Maxim Vengerov enjoys international acclaim as a conductor as well as being one of the most in-demand soloists in all of classical music. You have the chance to experience him performing in both of these capacities at the Usher Hall in our final Sunday Classics concert of the season.
In the first half Vengerov takes on the solo role in Bruch’s magnificent violin concerto, and in the second he returns
to conduct the musicians of the Würth Philharmonic in Shostakovich’s tenth symphony, an astounding achievement in symphonic form and a vitriolic indictment of life under Stalin.
The Würth Philharmonic is a newly formed ensemble, founded by philanthropist Reinhold Würth to bring together some of the world’s most talented, young musicians to form a virtuosic symphony orchestra performing with today’s greatest conductors and soloists. Würth’s vision is, in uncertain political times, to bring together musicians from all nations, overcoming the tensions that so often appear across the world
