Violinist Jennifer Pike has been heralded for her ‘dazzling interpretative flair and exemplary technique’ (Classic FM). She joins the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to perform Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1, a work that unleashes the full spectrum of the violin, from beautiful melodies to astounding virtuosity, and never fails to enthral listeners.
Many listeners will know ‘Vltava’ from Smetana’s Má Vlast. It an evocative orchestral picture of the river that flows through Prague, filled with ebbing and flowing woodwind and strings. Completing the programme, Chloé van Soeterstède conducts Dvořák’s Symphony No.7. Infused with Dvořák’s Czech heritage, this Romantic symphony combines soaring string themes, roaring brass, atmospheric percussion and dancing woodwind.
