Vladimir Ashkenazy directs the highly acclaimed Chamber Orchestra of Europe and virtuoso violinist Valeriy Sokolov in this remarkable programme of Finnish works combined with Schumann's uplifting Symphony No. 2. Ashkenazy has particularly been praised for his performances of works by Sibelius and is renowned for his interpretations of Romantic repertoire; his creativity fused with Sokolov's vitality and the prowess of this multi-national orchestra creates an altogether spellbinding concert.
