A balanced blend of Scandinavian and British music appears on this programme destined for repeat performances on the Orchestra’s tour to the UK and Amsterdam.
You would be hard pressed to name another violinist in as much demand on both sides of the Atlantic as Latvian-born Baiba Skride. On her recent Orfeo recording of the Sibelius concerto, Whole Note writes: “Skride is terrific in the Sibelius...providing a steely edge to the lush tone and phrasing and giving the work a real Nordic feel.”
Walton’s 1st Symphony is guaranteed a rousing reception on tour, and is certainly well-deserving of another airing in Bergen after a nine year interval.
The concert is made possible by the generous support of Rika AS, Yvonne and Bjarne Rieber.
