We’re delighted to welcome the amazing Maxim Vengerov back to The Anvil, as both violinist and conductor. After the irresistible overture to Die Fledermaus, Bruch’s most popular violin concerto is one of the wonders of the violin repertoire, with an endless flow of heartfelt melody which is unsurpassed. Saint-Saens’ concert piece is perfectly judged and brilliantly written.

The Tenth is perhaps Shostakovich’s finest symphony – an epic journey, powerful and dramatic, yet with moments of touching simplicity. The first three movements, filled with a sense of struggle, are balanced by a more optimistic finale completed after the death of Stalin.
