There is a chance to hear the violinist Maxim Vengerov in action in Oxford on 23 April 2017, performing and directing a pair of works by Mozart with the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra, artistic director Marios Papadopoulos, at the Sheldonian Theatre. Vengerov is the soloist in Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 'Turkish' and is joined by Natalia Lomeiko for Mozart's Concertone for Two Violins, with Vengerov directing from the violin. The programme is completed by Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 conducted by Marios Papadopoulos.

As part of Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra's residency at the University of Oxford, Vengerov will be giving a violin masterclass with students at Trinity College, Oxford on 24 April. In November 2016, Vengerov premiered student composer Eugene Birman's Violin Concerto following the orchestra's annual composers' workshop which offers student composers from the University the opportunity to have their work premiered in one of the Orchestra's main season concerts.

Full details from the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra's website.
