Conductor Benjamin Ellin
Leader Michele Northam
Violin Ivana Ćetković

Verdi   Overture, The Force of Destiny
Britten   Violin Concerto
Rachmaninov   Symphony No 2

We conclude the season with arguably one of the greatest symphonies, Rachmaninov’s Second - written in the aftermath of great personal turmoil for the composer. We also make a warm welcome to Ivana Ćetković who will share Britten’s Violin Concerto with us all, and Verdi’s Force of Destiny lays the foundation for deep emotion right at the start of the concert.
