Explosive, barefoot and unpredictable! It quickly becomes apparent when you hear Moldovan violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja perform that there is only one thing of importance to her: the music. In Patricia’s debut directing Britten Sinfonia she performs a distinctly Eastern European folk-flavoured programme including Bartók’s Romanian folk melodies, string arrangements of Brahms and Janáček masterpieces and Tigran Mansurian’s violin concerto inspired by the same biblical texts used by Brahms for his four serious songs.
