Chamber Orchestra of Europe

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.
