Renowned conductor Vasily Petrenko welcomes the new year with two exciting concerts you won’t want to miss. The first, on 6 and 7 January, features Richard Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben, a story of an imaginary hero realised in beautiful orchestral forms. Paired with Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture and Sibelius’ Violin Concerto performed by violinist Ning Feng, you’re sure to feel the force of music at this performance. You can get tickets for the concert here.
The second, on 13 and 14 January, is a performance starring Petrenko and pianist Boris Giltburg. Together, the duo is sure to master this all-Russian programme with finesse.
