London Philharmonic Orchestra with Karina Canellakis

This listing is in the past
Southbank Centre: Royal Festival HallBelvedere Road, London, Greater London, SE1 8XX, United Kingdom
Dates/times in London time zone

The opening chords of Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ Symphony are like a jolt of electricity – and some would say that classical music is still reeling from the shockwaves. Forged in an age of revolution, this is a symphony on an uncompromising scale, delivered with a directness that never gets any less startling. In other words, it’s perfect for the LPO’s charismatic Principal Guest Conductor Karina Canellakis – just as the fire and ice of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto are ideally suited to our soloist Augustin Hadelich: a violinist who’s been praised for his sense of ‘tightrope danger’ and ‘no-holds-barred approach’. He should be in his element.
