Programme Brochure


Three Pieces in Old Style

Serenade (after Plato's "Symposium")
- Intermission/Autograph Session -

Symphony No. 8 in F major, Op. 93

in praise of love

Muse over five musical statements of love in Bernstein’s Serenade - a violin concerto in all but name - with multiple award-winning Korean violinist Soyoung Yoon. Returning Polish conductor Michal Nesterowicz shows us the beautiful craftsmanship of two masterworks: his countryman Górecki’s serene Three Pieces in Old Style; and Beethoven’s Eighth, whose zest and sunny energy hinted little at his increasing deafness. 

Enormously talented, with a terrific temperament and a bouncy effervescent quality - The Strad
