Sibelius Violin Concerto

29 Feb 2024 | 19:30 | Sheldonian Theatre, Broad Street

Rossini Overture to The Barber of Seville* Side-by-Side
Sibelius Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 47
Haydn Symphony No. 104 in D major, Hob. I:104, ‘London’

Anna-Liisa Bezrodny violin
Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey conductor*
Marios Papadopoulos conductor

Marios Papadopoulos conducts our remarkable Associate Concertmaster Finnish-Estonian violinist Anna-Liisa Bezrodny in music close to her heart – the violin concerto by the composer who defined Finland in sound, Jean Sibelius. The concerto Sibelius wrote as a surrogate for the virtuoso violin career he could never have is a work of inspiring focus and fortitude, the virtuosity of which is never just for show. In this concert it is joined by the overture to Rossini’s enduringly popular comic opera, and Haydn’s best-known symphony.

The Sheldonian Theatre is a unique space to experience live music. To see an interactive map of the theatre click here.
