One of the world’s greatest violinists, Pinchas Zukerman, plays Elgar’s hauntingly beautiful violin concerto at an event in Cambridge next month.
The violinist joins with Corn Exchange orchestra in residence, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, on Saturday April 11.
Conducted by Christoph Koenig, the concert opens with Beethoven’s monumental Symphony Number three Eroica, one of the most popular of Beethoven’s works and the one which ushered in the romantic era of musical composition.
There is a pre-concert talk, starting at 6pm at the nearby Cambridge City Hotel, in which local classical music expert James Day provides insights into the background of the composers and repertoire you are about to hear. This event is free of charge to ticket holders.
Students and Under 16s tickets are £12.50, groups of 20 and more benefit from prices of £17.50 and full price individual concert tickets start at £28.50. Bookings can be made online at www.cornex.co.uk, by telephoning the box office on 01223 357851 or by calling in person to the box office in Wheeler Street Cambridge.
