Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra - Maxim Vengerov

maxim vengerov

 For some of the best tunes ever written – or borrowed – look no further. In his symphony ‘From the New World’, Antonín Dvořák wove the spirituals and plantation songs of America into music of intense warmth and spontaneity but just a touch of sadness and longing too. Before that, a true aristocrat of the violin, Maxim Vengerov, plays the radiant song of love that is Max Bruch’s first violin concerto, where the weave of a single instrument floats, battles and rhapsodises against an orchestral mass that supports and cajoles.

The concert opens with the first performance of Alexander Dakin’s Sinfonietta under our Conducting Fellow, Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey, selected from our 2020 Composers’ Workshop.
Supported by Dr Michael Peagram
