The celebrated German maestro Wolfram Christ returns to the podium to launch the season on 31 October. An evening of Mozart concert gems opens with Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, one of the best-loved of all classical compositions. The programme's centerpiece is the exquisitely crafted Violin Concerto No 5 in A Major. Performed by Avigail Bushakevitz, its popular 'Turkish' soubriquet derives from the exotic middle section of its third movement.The magnificent Symphony No 39 K543 in E-flat, one of the miraculous trilogy of works that crowned the great Austrian composer's symphonic oeuvre in 1788, concludes the programme.
