This concert will feature two masterpieces of romantic style under the baton of Maestro David Fallis and with young violinist Artur Chakhmakhchyan as soloist. It offers a different musical palette from the rest of the season, with romantic notes of two contrasting masterpieces from both corners of old continent: Russia and Spain.
