ÉDOUARD LALO – Symphonie espagnole for violin and orchestra in D minor, Op. 21
JOHANNES BRAHMS – Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73

Tonight the podium of the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra will be graced by Thomas Sanderling, the German Maestro born in Novosibirsk. He is the son of Kurt Sanderling, the legendary master of the baton. In the second half of the 20th century T. Sanderling was an assistant to such legends as Herbert von Karajan and Leonard Bernstein. The conductor is invited to conduct the orchestras of Europe’s leading opera theatres including Wiener Staatsoper and Bayerische Staatsoper, Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin and La Fenice Venice to name but a few. T. Sanderling is one of the most influential and original conductors of Russian repertoire nowadays. He was a close friend of composer Dmitry Shostakovich and his family.

The illustrious maestro leads the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra in Brahms’ monumental Second Symphony. “Romantic idyll perfused by uncomplicated charm…pastoral with hints of the old Viennese poetry”, said 20th-century Russian critic Ivan Sollertinsky about this cheery, lyrical and poetical composition. Violinist Dalia Kuznecovaitė will be a soloist in Édouard Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole in five movements. After the legendary violin virtuoso Pablo Sarasate performed it in 1875, both the opus and the conductor got wide recognition.
