Bringing more world-class performers to Cambridge this month, Cambridge Classical Concert Series continues, this time presenting the award-winning Philharmonia Orchestra on 4 March.
Running until June, the series brings some of the greatest orchestras, soloists and conductors in the world to our doorstep to deliver thrilling live performances – and this month’s offering looks set to be a highlight.
Featuring conductor Tugan Sokhiev and violinist Alexandra Soumm, the event begins at 7.30pm, offering a programme which includes Violin Concerto No. 1 by German Romantic composer Bruch. The piece is one of his best-loved and most enduring works, beautifully showcasing the flexibility and richness of the violin.
After the interval, it’s the turn of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6: Pathétique, one of the defining pieces of the Romantic era.
Tickets are £17-£40, and there’s a pre-concert talk over the road at the Guildhall Council Chamber which is free to attend for ticket holders.
