Greek virtuoso violinist Simos Papanas makes his UK concerto debut this March with AST at St Andrew’s Hall, Norwich.
The concert begins with Fauré’s rich and evocative Pelléas & Mélisande Suite, which includes the famous Sicilienne for flute and harp. Saint-Saëns’ lyrical Violin Concerto No.3 will be performed by Simos Papanas.
Rounding off the evening is Dvorák’s rarely heard and charming Symphony No 4 in D minor. Full of Czech lyricism and rhythms, it has a beautiful slow movement influenced by Wagner.
