Alan Gilbert and Frank Peter Zimmermann

Modern music of the fleet-footed type characterises the beginning of this concert: with Béla Bartók’s youthfully animated Second Violin Concerto and the ingenious, jazzy minimalism of John Adams. The main symphonic work of the evening is a contrast: Tchaikovsky’s Fourth with its powerful world-weary sounds. Alan Gilbert conducts, and the soloist is the violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann.
