It’s time for the Philharmonia’s second violin section to shine in this free early evening concert.

Julian Milone, a member of the Philharmonia for almost 40 years, has arranged a meditative Bach sonata, a virtuosic Paganini caprice, and three of Brahms’s fiery Hungarian dances for his friends and colleagues. He’s also chosen Prokofiev’s rarely heard Sonata, composed for an ensemble of advanced violin students to play in unison, and his own work En Coulisses – the title translates as ‘backstage’ or ‘in the wings’.
