The youngest ever winner of the Tchaikovsky International Competition (in 1990) brings her elegance and bravura to the magnificent Brahms violin concerto, followed by Sarasate’s bold Zigeunerwisen. Mozart’s delightful overture and Haydn’s noble “London” Symphony gilds the programme conducted by Alexander Briger.
