Gustavo Gimeno conducts the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra with Patricia Kopatchinskaja on violin.
‘Irresistible from start to finish’, is how The Times
described Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto with Patricia Kopatchinskaja. Her
captivating performance makes this work dance: an ideal introduction to
the spectacular music from Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet.
You can cut the tension with a knife in the Dance of the Knights, the
passion rises sky-high in the Balcony Scene and the tranquil ending
leaves no one unmoved.
