Designed by Olli Mustonen, this programme is a display of pyrotechnics from start to finish. It begins with one of the most famous violin concertos of all time. Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is performed by Karen Gomyo, praised for her sense of pulse and sound by the Globe and Mail, the most widely read newspaper in Canada. After the interval, a contrasting and complementary selection of 20th-century music completes the programme: the majestic A Fanfare for the Common Man, the demanding Playgrounds for Angels and the charming Double Concerto.
