Pocket Number 9: Sheldonian Theatre, Broad Street, Oxford

Snapshot 1 (27-02-2015 02-04)I attended at the Sheldonian Theatre and had the privilege of experiencing a live performance of the acclaimed violin virtuoso, Maxim Vengerov, who was playing in Oxford as Artist in Residence with the Oxford Philomusica . Maxim proceeded to play Frank’s Violin Sonata in A major, Saint-Saëns’ Havanaise and Tchaikovsky’s Valse-Scherzo Op.34.

The expressive ease with which Mr. Vengerov coloured the most demanding cadenzas was astonishing.

After the concert I joined a queue of groupies and managed to meet with Mr. Vengerov and explain what I was doing.

For the montage I received an Oxford Philomusica brochure and Mr Vengerov sent me to  visit the Ashmolean museum where he had enjoyed a Vivaldi exhibition.
