At the concert, the violinist will shine with Camille Saint-Saëns’s thrilling piece Introduction et Rondo Capriccioso and Maurice Ravel’s Tzigane, a highly virtuoso rhapsody for violin and orchestra in which the French composer follows Niccolò Paganini’s virtuoso pieces for violin, striking a folkloristic tone by using the so-called “gypsy scale”.

Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic will fill the rest of the programme with orchestral pieces and dances from French operas and ballets. 

Venue: Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Chennai

Date & time: 29th January, 6 pm to 9 pm
