London Philharmonic Orchestra
Robin Ticciati conductor
Anne-Sophie Mutter violin
Imagination and virtuosity of one of Mendelssohn's finest concertos, and Anne-Sophie Mutter's long-awaited return to Paris
The London Philharmonic Orchestra's next concert will be a real event, since it marks Anne-Sophie Mutter's return to the Theatre to perform Mendelssohn's violin concerto. With this concerto, the composer laid down a new bridge between Classicism and Romanticism, and created a piece that is at once melodically rich and virtuoso. For many violinists, it is their favourite piece in their repertoire. It will also be interesting to get to know the young British conductor Robin Ticciati, recently appointed director of the Glyndebourne Festival Opera and who will shortly take up the same position with the Deutsches Symphonie Orchester de Berlin. Trained by his mentors Colin Davis and Simon Rattle, he is attracting the attention of many directors of orchestras and opera houses keen to invite him. Remember his name... No doubt one of the greats of tomorrow...
