& Lara St. John

Gemma New Conductor
Lara St. John Violin

Strauss: Don Juan, Korngold: Violin Concerto, Buhr: Akasha (Sky), Stravinsky: Petrushka

The worlds of film and fantasy collide as internationally renowned Lara St. John performs Korngold’s Hollywood-inspired Violin Concerto. The rich sounds of Stravinsky’s ballet music come alive in Petrushka, weaving the tale of the playful Russian puppet, while Strauss’s Don Juan offers the lush colours of the orchestra in this season closing concert.
