Conductor Christoph Koenig
Violin Pinchas Zukerman
Beethoven Symphony No. 3 'Eroica'
Elgar Violin Concerto in B minor
The astonishingly gifted, world-class violinist Pinchas Zukerman joins the Cambridge Corn Exchange's resident orchestra The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for a concert featuring major works by Beethoven and Elgar.
Christoph Koenig conducts this penultimate concert in the 2014/15 Cambridge Classical Concert Series. The evening opens with Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 ('Eroica'), a work which, in its ambition, unprecedented scale and emotional depth, heralded the beginning of the Romantic Era. After the interval, the orchestra moves onto a piece which is widely regarded as the greatest English contribution to the treasury of Romantic violin concertos; Elgar's celebrated Violin Concerto in B minor, which Zuckerman performs with pure brilliance and élan.
Pre-concert talk at 6pm at Cambridge City Hotel, with local classical music expert James Day. Free of charge to concert ticket holders.
