Described as “something of a phenomenon,” violinist Lara St. John teams with conductor Rune Bergmann and the CPO in Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Corigliano’s Red Violin Concerto, drawn from the music which earned him the 1998 ACADEMY AWARD® for Best Original Score. His mind-bending Three Hallucinations opens the programme, and the evening rises to a frenzied climax with Stravinsky’s earth-shattering The Rite of Spring.
