Daniel Barenboim and his pioneering orchestra make their first visits to Snape Maltings. Comprised of young musicians from both Arab and Israeli backgrounds, the orchestra’s radiant and intense playing has won world-wide acclaim.
A new work by a British composer is framed by Brahms’ lyrical concerto, played by one of the work’s leading interpreters, and Scriabin’s voluptuous and exhilarating tone poem.
