Anna Thorvaldsdóttir       Illumine (UK premiere)         

Bruch      Violin Concerto no. 1 in G minor op. 26       

The ever-popular Haydn and Bruch concertos will be played by final year undergraduate students; both are filled to the brim with melodies that last long in the memory and barely need an introduction. We have partnered these classics with Baltic and Icelandic works written solely for strings that inhabit very different and atmospheric sound worlds, and we are pleased that we can present the Vasks and Thorvaldsdóttir as the first performances in the UK.

Tickets: £13; concessions £11; students £3
