Firebird’s next concert on 22 October sees the return of internationally celebrated violinist Yury Revich and the world premiere of his arrangement of Paganini’s 24 Caprices alongside music by Donizetti and Puccini.
Following a magnificent performance of Paganini’s Violin Concerto no. 2 which enraptured Firebird’s audience in June, the internationally celebrated violinist Yury Revich returns with much anticipation.
Yury has arranged Paganini’s 24 Caprices – dazzling gemstones of the violin repertoire – for solo violin and orchestra and has offered Firebird the honour of premièring them on 22 October.
‘‘Yury Revich played with full-blooded authority, fleet-fingered dexterity, innate musicality and substantial accuracy…’
Yury plays a 1709 Stradivarius and performs all over the world, with orchestras like the Royal Philharmonic, the Russian National Orchestra and La Verdi Milano at such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Berlin Philharmonie and Vienna Konzerthaus.
This tour through the Caprices promises to be a spectacular virtuosic feat. We extend the Italian theme with Donizetti’s capricious Overture to Don Pasquale.
Straight from the stages of Opera North and English Touring Opera comes Sky Ingram for two of Puccini’s most adored arias.
