Weber - Overture 'Oberon'
Coleridge-Taylor: Violin Concerto in G minor, Op.80
Brahms: Symphony No.2 2 in D major, opus 73
Chineke! Orchestra performs at the Kölner Philharmonie on 15 November. The American violinist Elena Urioste interprets the highly romantic violin concerto by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. The concert opens with the overture of Carl Maria von Weber’s fairytale opera ‘Oberon’.
Kevin John Edusei makes a welcome return to conduct Chineke! and the violin soloist is Elena Urioste, a BBC Young Generation artist whose playing has been hailed as portraying in equal parts ‘passion, sensuality, brains and humour (Washington Post).
