Violinist and conductor Julian Rachlin is a musician appreciated around the world and also a favourite with Turku audiences. Here, he performs Prokofiev’s dazzling and memorable Second Violin Concerto, written in the inter-war period – a work full of fire, fury and force. The programme concludes with Mozart’s first and last essays in the symphony genre: a brief, lucid piece by an eight-year-old child prodigy paired with the complex, playful and mature Jupiter Symphony from more than two decades later.
