London calls for this special appearance at the Barbican Centre, opening with a new work celebrating the Orchestra’s 25th birthday by the nation’s favourite composer, John Rutter. After that, our longstanding friend Maxim Vengerov joins us, bringing with him a work all about companionship and deep musical relationships: the radiant violin concerto that Felix Mendelssohn conceived as a gift for his own close musical confidante, Joseph Joachim. Marios Papadopoulos closes the concert with Brahms’s irresistible second symphony − a beauteous, undulating orchestral journey through shadows towards light.
