A GLORIOUS PROM BY THE BAVARIAN RADIO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Sibelius, Prokofiev & R. Strauss: Gil Shaham (violin), Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra / Yannick Nézet‐Séguin (conductor), Royal Albert Hall, London, 31.7.2019. (CS)

Program:
Sibelius – Symphony No.1 in E minor Op.39 (Henry Wood Novelties: UK premiere, 1903)
Prokofiev – Violin Concerto No.2 in G minor Op.63 (Henry Wood Novelties: UK premiere, 1936)
R. Strauss – Der Rosenkavalier, suite

"Shaham’s performance was characterised by refinement and thoughtfulness, his imaginative reading facilitated by a flawless technique, warm tone, easy projection and detailed engagement with his accompanying partners.  From the first gentle steps of the unaccompanied theme to the final furious flourish of the Finale, the silky eloquence and beauty of Shaham’s interpretation were unwavering."
