Theatre Group outing to see Maxim Vengerov

Maxim Vengerov at the Sheldonian Theatre

We enjoyed a most marvellous evening at the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford, seeing/hearing Maxim Vengerox play Mozart. Concertone for Two Violins in C Major.K190′ and Violin Concerto No. 5 in A. major. K219. “Turkish”  The other violinist that accompanied him was Natalia Lomeiko and she too was brilliant.  Maxim also conducted the orchestra!

The second half was completely different.  The Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra played Beethoven Symphony No.4 in B flat major. op.60. conducted by Marios Papadopoulos.

The whole evening had us “spellbound.”  Definitely worthwhile putting up with the uncomfortable backless seats!

The sun shone and we had time before the performance for a drink and comfort break.

I had never heard either of the pieces played which was just pure joy.

What more could you want!  Our mini bus took us home so no waiting around for transport.
