"Unexpected things make a concert special; preferably, I prepare myself so that the unpredictable can happen," Vilde Frang said. She sees the ability to be 'inspired' as her greatest talent. Tonight, the Norwegian star violinist is inspired by Edward Elgar's rarely performed yet beautiful Violin Concerto. A passionate masterpiece full of mystery and captivating melodies. "With her extraordinarily beautiful tone, glowing from the lowest strings to the highest top notes, she seemed to honor the source of Elgar's inspiration," enthused The Guardian about her performance.

There will be a free introduction at 7:30 PM, co-sponsored by the Friends of Muziekgebouw Eindhoven.

Robin Ticciati is the chief conductor of the DSO from Berlin for a very brief time yet. The British maestro with Italian roots is one of the most exciting conductors of this moment. He took over the baton at this top German orchestra from illustrious predecessors such as Lorin Maazel and Riccardo Chailly. Freely improvising, playing on gut strings; for eight years, Ticciati inspired the DSO with the most unexpected ideas. Now they join forces one last time for the beloved Second Symphony of Sibelius. Trembling with a thirst for freedom, from the dark Andante to the triumphant finale, he leaves no one untouched.
