Conductor: Jaime Martin
Soloist: Nemanja Radulović (Violin)
Swedish Philharmonia (also performing as Gävle Symphony Orchestra)
Bo Linde: A Merry Overture op. 14
Khachaturian: Violin Concerto
Sibelius: Symphony No. 2
The Swedish Philharmonia returns to Edinburgh with the virtuosic Serbian-French violinist Nemanja Radulović. Radulović is renowned for his powerful and thrilling performances worldwide and we greatly look forward to what promises to be a memorable performance of Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto.
The concert opens a joyful work by one of Sweden’s finest composers; Bo Linde, who was born and lived in the orchestra’s home city of Gävle. Under the baton of renowned conductor, Jaime Martin, the orchestra will conclude their programme with Sibelius’ soulful, evocative and eternally popular Symphony No. 2.
‘He’s an engaging performer – swaying, dancing, and in complete communication with the orchestra, catching the eye of each section that accompanies him, as though sharing a special moment. […] Radulović, though, packed a punch when it was needed, and the final movement was full of virtuosic sawing that elicited a well-deserved roar from the audience at its completion.' Music OMH
