Sun 23 Apr, Sheldonian Theatre
The Sheldonian Theatre was erected in 1664-8 to a design by Sir Christopher Wren. Its purpose was to provide an appropriate secular venue for the principal meetings and public ceremonies of the University, and this remains its purpose today. In addition the theatre has become a leading venue for musical concerts and recitals. Please note that tickets for concerts cannot be bought at the Sheldonian.
Please note Semi Circle and Upper Gallery seats do not have backrest.

Maxim Vengerov violin

Marios Papadopoulos conductor
Maxim Vengerov returns to the Oxford Philharmonic as soloist in immortal violin works by Mozart. Joined first by Concertmaster Natalia Lomeiko for the spirited Concertone of 1774, Vengerov then performs the Violin Concerto No. 5 – an evocation of the elite Turkish Janissary soldiers of the Ottoman sultans’ infantry. Amid the groundbreaking catharsis of Beethoven’s symphonic oeuvre, the classically contained power of the fourth symphony yields a finale of joy and elation.
Supported by Sir Victor and Lady Blank& Dr John and Baroness Ruth Deech
