Rózsa & Bartók with Sir Simon Rattle

Date: 9 Dec
Time: 19:00
Sir Simon Rattle conductor

Roman Simovic violin
London Symphony Orchestra

Sir Simon Rattle conducts Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra - plus a rare performance of the Violin Concerto by Bartók's fellow-Hungarian (and Hollywood legend) Miklós Rózsa.

New worlds for old: from exile in America, Béla Bartók and Miklós Rózsa both longed for their native Hungary. Bartók imagined the nocturnal sounds of the Great Hungarian Plain, and transformed them into a defiant shout of hope and joy for a virtuoso orchestra. Rozsa, meanwhile, took time out from Hollywood to write a violin concerto that sings, dances and positively smoulders.
