Beethoven Concerto for violin, cello and piano*
Rimsky-Korsakov Schéhérazade

Maxim Vengerov conductor / violin
Andrew Litton conductor*
Antonio Meneses
cello
Igor Levit piano

The young sultana Scheherazade can delay her daybreak execution only by diverting the sultan with magnificent stories. She tells him of The Sea and the Shipwreck on the Rock, The Young Prince and Princess and The Festival of Baghdad. In his musical version of Sheherazade’s night of magnificent tales, Rimsky-Korsakov conjured magic, propulsion and beauty in some of the most intoxicating orchestral music ever written. Here, in a similarly astonishing show of skill and dexterity, Maxim Vengerov will first perform as soloist in the neat and ordered brilliance of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, before taking up the baton and conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra, as well as playing the violin solos, in the spectacular, seat-pinning power of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. Don’t miss Vengerov with some of his closest invited colleagues in what’s sure to be an atmosphere-charged concert.

The concert finishes at approximately 9.30pm
