SAT 02 APR: SHEHERAZADE

Saturday, April 2, 2022 8:00pm

Event Description

Hot off a series of triumphant concerts in Europe, rising star conductor Jonathon Heyward makes his LO debut with a radiant program.

Powerhouse performer Benjamin Beilman also makes his LO debut as soloist in the savagely brilliant Violin Concerto No . 1 by Prokofiev. Beilman has delighted both audiences and music critics, with the New York Times calling him “muscular with a glint of violence” in his playing.

The exotic beauty of Arabian Nights put the spotlight on the musicians of the LO. Sheherezade will wind you up in its silken threads to close a very special performance.
