An evening of emotional style music
Youngest-ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of Year Competition (2002) aged just twelve, violinist Jennifer Pike and the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra open the Leeds International Orchestral Season 2016/17 at Leeds Town Hall on Saturday 8 October.
Renowned as a violinist Jennifer Pike performs Sibelius’ Violin Concerto which is regarded as one of the most challenging concertos to play! Under the baton of chief conductor Vladimir Fedoseyev, the orchestra performs Borodin’s lively Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor and Tchaikovsky’s epic Symphony No 5 which has been used by the choreographer Massine for a ballet and Glenn Miller set lyrics to the second movement for his song, Moon Love.
Jennifer Pike has taken the musical world by storm with her unique artistry and compelling insight into music from the Baroque to the present day. She gained international recognition in 2002, when, along with becoming the youngest-ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year, became the youngest major prize-winner in the Menuhin International Violin Competition.
For nearly 40 years, Vladimir Fedoseyev has led the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra. His interpretations are famous for their depth, artistic passion and great sensitivity for the
National character of Russian music. Vladimir Fedoseyev has created in the Orchestra a specific melodious emotional style that distinguishes it from others and has helped it to earn worldwide acclaim.
