OCMF 2017 welcomes a true world star of music, Dame Evelyn Glennie, to play an exciting jazz-influenced concerto for violin and percussion. It is complemented by the fireworks of a Vivaldi double concerto, and contrasted with two glowing meditations. One is the glorious, mystic yet passionate Tallis Fantasia. For the other we welcome our remarkable composer-in-residence, Latvian Peteris Vasks, whose intensely beautiful works prove that new music doesn’t have to be difficult and abrasive. His violin concerto imagines a Lonely Angel looking down on Earth, “concerned, yet hopeful”.

STOP PRESS! a world première too! of Vasks’ new violin duet, written specially for Priya Mitchell and Hugo Ticciati
