Leonidas returns to the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia this month for three performances of Bartók Violin Concerto No.2 on 16, 17 and 18 March, conducted by Paavo Järvi.
He then travels to Turin to join Gianandrea Noseda and the Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino, with whom he performs Brahms Violin Concerto. Leonidas gave a “special” (Classical Source) performance of the concerto recently in London with Paavo Järvi and the Philharmonia Orchestra:
“Kavakos gave a remarkable display of verve, nerve and iron control as he massaged the tempos back and forth, making the music seem brand new, effortlessly darting in tone between surging fire and whispered honey.”
