The Festival is delighted to open this year’s two weeks of world-class music with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

 

The orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor, Xian Zhang brings her interpretation of three of the greatest German orchestral works. Opening with Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture we hear the depiction of a Roman leader’s transition from brutality to tenderness. This is followed by Beethoven’s First Symphony, one of the most ground breaking compositions in musical history.

 

After the interval Alexander Sitkovetsky makes a welcome return to the Festival with Brahms’ one and only Violin Concerto, written in the Hungarian style and dedicated to his great friend the violinist Joseph Joachim.
