Since her appointment as Leader of the ESO in 2017, violinist Zoë Beyers has quickly become an audience favourite as a featured soloist. This concert in the beautiful Great Malvern Priory, Beyers turns her hand to Robert Schumann’s poetic and evocative Violin Concerto, his last completed work. The concert also includes one of Haydn’s most intense and passionate symphonies and the beloved “Italian” Symphony by Schumann’s great friend and collaborator, Felix Mendelssohn.

Join us at 6.30pm for a very special pre-concert event with author and critic Jessica Duchen, whose bestselling novel about the Schumann Violin Concerto, ‘Ghost Variations’, has been received with world-wide praise. Duchen will share the story of the origin and discovery of this most mysterious of all works, one of music’s great detective stories.

This concert is part of Schumann 2018.
