The great Berner Symphonie-Orchester performs its second concert in our Zurich International Orchestra Series 2014-15, a profoundly romantic programme.

Beethoven’s much loved and shortest symphony, the Eighth, is recognized as his most playful and high-spirited; full of tumultuous twists and turns and culminating in one fast paced breath-taking finale, Tchaikovsky deemed the work as ‘one of the greatest symphonic masterpieces of Beethoven’.

The talented Chloë Hanslip, applauded as ‘the most charismatic violinist the UK has produced in recent years’ joins the orchestra to play Jean Sibelius’ only violin concerto. The piece is obsessive and driven, departing from the often lighter accompaniments of many other concertos and is perfectly paired with Brahms’ warm and melodic Symphony No. 2, which follows after the interval.

Bern Symphony Orchestra performs a second concert at Cadogan Hall – with pianist Oliver Schnyder – on Wednesday 8 April.
