This summer, Leonidas returns to London to perform at the BBC Proms alongside Riccardo Chailly and the Filarmonica della Scala on 25 August. Leonidas joins the orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall to perform Brahms Violin Concerto, which he recorded with Chailly and the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester for an acclaimed album in 2013:
“Leonidas Kavakos’s account of the violin concerto is the finest to appear on disc in years. Fabulously poised with an exceptional dynamic range, Kavakos’s playing misses nothing, yet never draws attention to itself unnecessarily.”
The performance at the Proms is preceded by a concert with the orchestra at KKL Luzern on 24 August. Leonidas’ other festival highlights this summer include appearances at Bravo! Vail in Colorado, the Verbier Festival and the Enescu Festival in September.
