Vladimir Ashkenazy and Valeriy Sokolov perform Sibelius and Schumann
Chamber Orchestra of Europe
One of the most promising young violinist - Valeriy Sokolov - and one of the most prestigious chamber orchestras - the Chamber Orchestra of Europe - play under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy at the Cité de la musique in Paris.
This concert captures the collaboration with Vladimir Ashkenazy - an established conductor who himself has been a major soloist for the past half-century - in one of the most demanding pieces of the violin repertoire: Sibelius’ violin concerto. The 90 minutes version offers the complete concert, while the 52 minutes version features Rakastava by Sibelius and Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 and the 43 minutes programme Sibelius’ Valse triste plus the concerto for violin.
