Mark Wigglesworth conductor
Saleem Ashkar piano
Schnelzer’ A Freak in Burbank
Mendelssohn Piano Concerto No.1
Rachmaninov Symphony No.2
“What a joy [the Mendelssohn concerto] was. The soloist, the young Palestinian Israeli Saleem Abboud Ashkar, has the slender looks of a matinee idol, and his playing too was fabulously well-groomed, light-fingered and neat.” – London Telegraph
This sensational musical talent makes his MSO debut with a favourite guest of the Orchestra and its audiences, British conductor Mark Wigglesworth, who brings his legendary flair for to Rachmaninov’s passionate, luxuriously melodic symphony.
