British violinist Jennifer Pike has taken the musical world by storm with her unique artistry and compelling insight into music from the Baroque to the present day. She gained international attention in 2002 when, aged 12, she became the youngest-ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year and the youngest major prizewinner in the Menuhin International Violin Competition. Jennifer joins Ben Crick and Skipton Camerata for one of the great masterpieces of the violin repertoire, Beethoven’s Violin Concerto.
Haydn is commonly regarded as the father of the classical symphony. In the first half of tonight’s concert his final composition in that form, the 'London' Symphony, is paired with Stravinsky’s neo-classical Dumbarton Oaks.
