ADAMS Son of Chamber Symphony
BARBER Violin Concerto
SCHUBERT Symphony No 5

KARINA CANELLAKIS – Conductor
BENJAMIN BEILMAN – Violin

Never one to settle for obvious titles to his orchestral works, America’s greatest living composer revisits the dizzying territory of his original Chamber Symphony in typically febrile style. Barber’s Violin Concerto offers a lyrical contrast in the hands of 26-year-old compatriot Benjamin Beilman. Expect a more relaxed style in Schubert’s sunny Fifth Symphony under the guidance of Karina Canellakis, winner of the 2016 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award.

PERFORMER INSIGHTS, 6.30PM:
Karina Canellakis – one of America’s most talented young conducting talents – introduces the evening’s concert alongside Sub-Principal Bassoon Alison Green.
