Nikolaj Znaider conductor, violin

Mozart Violin Concerto No 5 (‘Turkish’) in A major K219
Tchaikovsky Symphony No 5 in E minor Op 64

Renowned as one of the great violinists of our time, Nikolaj Znaider is also forging a stellar reputation as a conductor. In partnership with the London Symphony Orchestra, he both plays and conducts in a programme that delights and moves in equal measure.

Mozart’s Violin Concerto No 5 is spirited and serene by turns, with a lightness of touch that verges on the mischievous. Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, on the other hand, mingles majesty and lyricism in music of great emotional and melodic power.

The London Symphony Orchestra is regularly named as one of the top orchestras in the world; its welcome return to Brighton Festival is a true highlight.
