Visionary conductor Jakub Hrůša returns to the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra after continued acclaim across the world for his ‘quite astonishing conducting’ (BBC Music Magazine) and ‘unforced yet energetic readings’ (The Age). He is joined in this concert by the inspired Russian-British violinist Alina Ibragimova for one of the great 20th century violin concertos.

Originating out of troubled times, Bartók’s Violin Concerto No.2 employs lusciously mysterious and brooding folk elements.

Alina Ibragimova’s recent performances have been praised for their ‘terrifying rawness and electrifying energy’ (The Guardian) and with a reputation as one of the most accomplished and intriguing violinists of her generation, this will be a performance not to miss. Shostakovich’s acclaimed Symphony No. 5 concludes the program.
