The Philharmonia’s second visit to Warwick Arts Centre will be led by a conductor who is renowned around the world.
Lorin Maazel has recently completed a long and distinguished tenure as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, although he has a history of conducting the Philharmonia of over fifty years. Despite this tonight will be his first visit to the Butterworth Hall.
As the youngest ever winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition, Akiko Suwanai has established a prolific and prestigious international career, performing regularly in the major cities of Europe, the Americas and Asia.
She will begin our concert with Mozart’s Fifth Violin Concerto, before Maazel leads the orchestra with Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, concluding in a breath-taking finale.
