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... Also featured in this programme is the composer's Valse triste, conducted by Ashkenazy.
