Viviane travels to Seoul to give the Asian première of Anders Hillborg’s second violin concerto, joining Thierry Fischer and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra at the Lotte Concert Hall.

A co-commission of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Minnesota Orchestra and the Seoul Philharmonic, the work received its first performance in October 2016 at the Konserthuset in Stockholm, with critics such as the Leipziger Volkszeitung reviewing the score as ‘fresh and skilfully constructed…virtuosic – unbelievably exciting. It progresses with a directly speaking, timeless, beauty.’ 

The Asian première will be given on Friday 3 November.
