Mahler's Fifth Symphony is a work that spans the full gamut of emotions. From the chilling solo trumpet opening through to its joyous finale the music is an engaging and electrifying journey.
Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto is one of the foremost concertos of the Romantic repertoire, lyrical and elegiac in the first two movements, spectacular and brilliant in the finale.
Tamsin Waley-Cohen, noted for her 'radiant and soaring' playing, has performed with the Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic and BBC orchestras. She is currently a recipient of the European Concert Hall Organisation Rising Stars Awards.
