Nikolaj Znaider, the Danish – Israeli classical violinist and conductor returns to the Barbican to explore the music of Richard Strauss. This concert features his tone poem, Death and Transfiguration, a vivid depiction of a man coming to terms with his own mortality. Then, Soile Isokoski, one of the world’s finest lyric sopranos, will end the programme with the closing scene from Strauss’ opera Capriccio. Znaider begins the concert with one of Beethoven’s most popular and well loved works, Symphony No 5.
