Programme Note

A festive favourite and a violin classic performed by acclaimed soloist Vilde Frang.

Celebrated virtuoso Bronislav Huberman characterised Brahms's symphonic masterpiece as 'a concerto for violin against orchestra - and the violin wins!'

Tchaikovsky's Christmas ballet favourite embraces some of his most ravishing miniature gems, including the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Arabian Dance, Dance of the Reed Flutes and Waltz of the Flowers.
