Violinist Renaud drops in
THE PHILHARMONIA ORCHESTRA: The second concert in the orchestra's season at De Montfort Hall sees it joined by soloist Renaud Capuçon.
Renaud is the older, violin-playing half of the celebrated Frères Capuçon.
Having had immense success this year throughout the USA and at this summer's BBC Proms, the brothers have established themselves as one the must-see talents of 2012. Renaud is a featured artist with EMI Classics and on Classic FM.
As a soloist, he has performed with major orchestras all over Europe and has worked with conductors such as Bernard Haitink, Claudio Abbado and Daniel Harding.
He will play the hugely popular, yet fiendishly difficult, Violin Concerto by Mendelssohn.
Also on the programme is Mahler's majestic Symphony No 5. The conductor will be Juraj Valcuha.
The concert takes place on October 15 at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced from £10 to £32 (concessions £9-£31). Call the box office on 0116 233 3111.
