Symphony Orchestra Basel — Very British
None other than the world-renowned violin virtuoso Fritz Kreisler once said, "If you want to know who I think is the greatest living composer, I will say Elgar without hesitation." A little later, he commissioned a violin concerto by Elgar, which Kreisler premiered in London in 1910. In the Stadtcasino Basel, one of the most prominent violinists of our time, the gentleman Daniel Hope, meets the Sinfonieorchester Basel under the direction of Ivor Bolton, who comes from near Manchester. An Anglo-Saxon evening awaits the audience under the motto “Very British,” as Dvořák's 8th Symphony, nicknamed “The ‘English’ Symphony,” is heard after the interval.
Tickets are CHF 35-105 for adults and half price for students.
