Vladimir Jurowski Conductor

Patricia Kopatchinskaja Violin

Magnus Lindberg Chorale
Bartók Violin Concerto No 2
Beethoven Symphony No 3 ‘Eroica’

Colour, heroism and boundless power come together in the London Philharmonic Orchestra's compelling Festival concert under its Principal Conductor, the charismatic Vladimir Jurowski.

Beethoven famously tore the original dedication to Napoleon from his Third Symphony, furious that he had proclaimed himself Emperor of France and fearful of the conflict that he could bring to Europe. The 'Eroica' remains a revolutionary work, whose rich melodies and heroic ambitions swept away all previous ideas of what a symphony could be.

Making her Festival debut, the astonishing young Moldovan violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja performs Bartók's brilliant Second Violin Concerto, her remarkably vivid playing an ideal match for the piece's earthy Hungarian folk influences. The concert begins with the radiant hues of Magnus Lindberg's Bach-inspired Chorale.

Vladimir Jurowski: 'His music-making tends to crackle with fresh ideas and intellectual engagement'
