Winner of the 2005 Sibelius Competition, Alina Pogostkina's recent concert tours have seen her perform at some of the world's most renowned festivals and venues. She has collaborated with conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenazy and Gustavo Dudamel, and highlights of this season include her debut with Budapest Festival Orchestra with Marin Alsop, and opening the BBC Symphony Orchestra concerts season at the Barbican Centre under the baton of Sakari Oramo. The Sibelius concerto is one of the cornerstones of the violin literature, and Pogostkina is sure to coax out the innumerable nuances in the work on her Stradivarius “Sasserno” violin, made in 1717.

Sweden's Daniel Blendulf is a multi-award-winning conductor. On this programme, he conducts Saariaho's atmospheric Ciel d'hiver, which is inspired by the Nordic winter sky. The Concerto for Orchestra was one of the last works Hungarian master Béla Bartók completed before his death from leukaemia in 1945. The work showcases all aspects of the orchestra, giving each section a chance to shine in what has become one of the most popular orchestral pieces of the 20th century.

Violinist Janine Jansen had to cancel her performance due to illness. In her place we welcome the award-winning violinist Alina Pogostkina.
