Principal Guest Conductor Markus Stenz conducts an eclectic program including the beautiful Siegfried Idyll that Richard Wagner wrote for his wife, Cosima. In response to failing his violin audition with the Vienna Philharmonic, Sibelius composed one of the most technically challenging violin concertos ever written. Latvian violinist Baiba Skride is up to the task and joins the BSO for the performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto. Haydn’s Symphony No. 104, "London," is the composer's most regal symphony, filled with the sounds of trumpets and timpani.

This concert is not presented by Strathmore.
