Japanese violinist Sayaka Shoji joins the Philharmonia Orchestra on 27 June for a performance of Tchaikovsky’s iconic Violin Concerto. Described by The Sunday Times as displaying a ‘passionate, free, almost improvisatory virtuosity of the highest order’, Shoji is one of classical music’s most exciting talents and the Orchestra are thrilled that she will be able to join us for this impressive programme.
The concert also sees acclaimed Russian conductor Yuri Temirkanov conduct Mussorgsky’s rousing Pictures at an Exhibition, a mainstay of the classical music repertoire and a hall of fame favourite around the world.
