Aleksey Semenenko violin
Jiri Rozen conductor
Smetana Scherzo from the Triumph Symphony
Dvorak Serenade for Strings
Beethoven Violin Concerto
If you’ve yet to experience the thrill of hearing the big sound of one of the UK’s finest symphony orchestras at St George’s, this is a chance to put that right. Wales’ acclaimed national orchestra comes to St George’s with a programme crowned by Beethoven’s mighty Violin Concerto, and adorned further by two exciting young talents, still both in their twenties. Czech conductor Jiri Rozen’s success at the Salzburg and Donatella Flick conducting competitions has led to a string of engagements with orchestras such as the Czech Philharmonic and BBC Philharmonic. Ukrainian violinist Aleksey Semenenko, praised in The Strad for ‘an unparalleled level of refined musicianship and stage presence’, has recently joined the prestigious BBC New Generation Artist programme.
