Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor

Mozart Overture, Der Schauspieldirektor

Eötvös DoReMi


Bruckner Symphony No. 7

Described by the violinist Midori as "so rhapsodic and so individual", DoReMi is Peter Eötvös’s second violin concerto, given its UK première here with Esa-Pekka Salonen conducting. This, with the sparkling overture to Mozart’s 1786 backstage comedy of artistic tantrums and overblown egos, Der Schauspieldirektor, contrasts with Bruckner’s great tribute to Wagner, the Seventh Symphony.
