NB. This is a change to our printed Festival Guide.
The Festival is delighted to confirm the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra to replace the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra. The programme remains unchanged, with an evening of popular romantic favourites from Russia and Finland. The great Tchaikovsky violin concerto performed by one of England’s leading virtuosos Chloe Hanslip is followed by Sibelius’ powerful and dramatic 5th symphony with its famous ending inspired by a flight of swans.
The concert will be conducted by Marios Papadopoulos the orchestra’s Founder and Music Director.
“Hanslip seduces the senses with a compelling suppleness of dynamic, phrasing and senza-vibrato purity.” The Strad
