- Bartók Violin Concerto No. 2, 36′

“Hopelessly in love, a young artist takes opium. He falls into a delirium, and sees the strangest of visions…” The result: Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, a flamboyant, no-holds-barred adventure into the wildest extremes of the romantic imagination. Klaus Mäkelä is one of Europe’s fastest-rising conductors; imagine the energy when he joins the nation’s favourite violinist Nicola Benedetti in the raw, fiery world of Bartók’s extraordinary Second Violin Concerto.
6 February, 1pm: Join the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Symphony Orchestra for a special showcase before this afternoon’s concert.
8 February, post-concert: Our CBSO Youth Ambassadors interview violinist Nicola Benedetti following her performance in tonight’s concert.
