The brilliant Albanian born British violinist Alda Dizdari and pianist Tom Blach return to Oxford with a programme that explores music from the first half of the 20th century by composers with whom Alda has a deep connection and understanding. From the colours of Debussy to the passion and drama of Enescu’s third violin sonata, the beauty of Elgar’s violin sonata and the virtuosity of Ravel’s Tzigane, this programme is a musical journey not to be missed. Alda brings her unique intensity, passion and insight to the music.
