Two musicians barely into their thirties: Moldovan violinist Alexandra Conunova and Russian conductor Valentin Uryupin. The latter’s career is divided equally between the clarinet and the baton; considered a rising star in Russia, he is currently principal director of the Rostov and resident director at the Perm Opera. Conunova is an exceptional virtuoso: she has played Guadagnini 1785 ex “Ida Levin” violin with all the great European orchestras. Here she performs Mozart’s Concerto K.219, the last of five written for the violin. The rest of the programme is led by Uryupin: the overture to Salieri’s one-act opera, followed by Schubert’s Fourth Symphony, known as the “Tragic“.
