UBS Soundscapes LSO Artist Portrait: Leonidas Kavakos
NB - change of programme
BERG Violin Concerto
MAHLER Symphony No 1 ('Titan')
Semyon Bychkov conductor
Leonidas Kavakos violin
London Symphony Orchestra
Mahler began his First Symphony in his late twenties. Incorporating themes from his earlier song cycles, this monumental score charts a young hero’s coming of age. It retains a youthful energy, but explores suffering and sorrow, and ends by defying the mundane and insisting on life’s joy.
Change of programme
Leonidas Kavakos will now be performing the Berg Violin Concerto, as circumstances have prevented Osvaldo Golijov from completing his own concerto in time for it to be premiered in London.
