Resuming his brilliant career as a violinist after a few years' absence, Maxim Vengerov brings all his trademark ardour to a kaleidoscopic programme from his Russian homeland. He sets Tchaikovsky's concerto afire, then conducts and plays the ravishing solos in Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, an exotically coloured, melodious treasure chest of fairy tales from the Arabian Nights. This marks Shalom Bard’s début as the TSO’s new RBC Resident Conductor.
