Jonian Ilias-Kadesha violin/director

LIGETI Concert Românesc

BARTÓK Divertimento

SKALKOTTAS Five Greek Dances 

MOZART Violin Concerto No 5 ‘Turkish’

RAVEL Tzigane

Fiery rhythms, blazing colours, pungent flavours: if you think European music is all about France, Germany and Italy, travel further east to sample some of the continent’s most delectable offerings.

Ligeti and Bartók drew inspiration from the earthy folk music of Romania and Hungary in their high-energy works, while Skalkottas embedded some of his country’s whirling traditional dances in a delirious orchestral showpiece. Even Mozart captured the glittering excitement of Turkish music in his Violin Concerto No. 5, while Ravel’s sultry Tzigane offers the epitome of exotic ‘gypsy’ fiddling.

Exuberant Greek-Albanian violinist Jonian Ilias-Kadesha is just the virtuoso to bring this flamboyant music to vibrant life.
