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. 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 Paquale. Straight from the stages of Opera North and English Touring Opera comes Sky Ingram for two of Puccini’s most adored arias.

“Yury Revich played with full-blooded authority, fleet-fingered dexterity, innate musicality and substantial accuracy…”
