Available to watch live on Medici TV.

Change of artists
Unfortunately Susanna Mälkki has had to withdraw from this concert due to travel restrictions. We are very grateful to Stephanie Childress for agreeing to step in at short notice to conduct the concert.

Furthermore it is with great regret that Christian Tetzlaff will also be unable to perform in this concert as he is unable to travel or perform because he has to undergo surgery. We are very grateful to Alina Ibragimova, who will perform the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto at this concert.

The programme remains unchanged.
