For his LSO debut, Alan Gilbert will conduct a pair of concerts featuring works by Scandinavian and Russian composers.
Gilbert will join forces with the most celebrated American-born violinist of today, Joshua Bell, to perform a work that was once dismissed as unplayable: Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. The programme also includes Sibelius’ triumphant Third Symphony, which marked a significant turning point in the composer’s career from romantic works to symphonies of more austere complexity, Hillborg’s Exquisite Corpse, which is dedicated to Gilbert, and one of Nielsen’s most performed works, the Overture from Masquerade.
