Brahms’ violin concerto is as serene as it is songful—perfect for the gleaming sound and expressive power of James Ehnes (Gramophone Artist of the Year 2021), performing with an Isabel favourite, the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Alexander Shelley, conductor. With Schumann's Symphony No. 3, this not-to-be missed powerhouse performance kicks off the Isabel's 2023/24 season.
