Szeps-Znaider Plays Elgar

An exceptional concerto. An extraordinary instrument.

Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider is one of the most sought-after violinists in the world. He returns to WASO to perform Elgar’s Violin Concerto on the same extraordinary instrument - the 1741 Guarnerius del Gesù – that the great Fritz Kreisler used for the Concerto’s premiere over a century ago. 

Asher Fisch proved himself a brilliant interpreter of Brahms when he led WASO through its first-ever Brahms symphony cycle in 2015. He now returns to the music of this great composer and leads his Orchestra through Brahms’ glorious Second Symphony.

“Occasionally, a recording comes along which radically changes a great piece: Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider’s amazing account of Elgar’s Violin Concerto is revolutionary.”
