ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
A TRIO OF WORKS THAT SPARKLE AND POP with all the delicious effervescence of fine champagne promise an intoxicating evening. Regarded as 'one of the most inspirational violinists today' (The Financial Times), Ilya Gringolts returns for the ecstatic love song that is Tchaikovsky's luxurious Violin Concerto. And Principal Guest Conductor Hannu Lintu guarantees fireworks aplenty from both Dvorák's brilliantly boisterous celebration of life - the Carnival Overture, and the glorious 'Organ Symphony' of Saint-Saëns, a highlight of the charming film about that loveable 'sheep-pig', Babe.
