Sir Antonio Pappano conductor
Sir Antonio Pappano is as persuasive in Tchaikovsky as he is in Puccini. Covent Garden’s Music Director makes his Oxford Philharmonic debut in this concert featuring Tchaikovsky's gripping symphonic tussle with fate, his Symphony No. 4. Our own Concertmaster Carmine Lauri is the soloist in Glazunov’s gorgeous Violin Concerto, a sweet stream of seamless joie de vivre that will have you asking why you’ve never heard it before. It forms the centrepiece of this Russian feast at the Sheldonian Theatre, for which we are proud to bring Pappano to Oxford.
The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21:45
