This month VWM has two projects on the road – Yuri Bashmet and his Symphony Orchestra of New Russia, and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Bashmet’s orchestra visits Paris, Cologne and Eindhoven, before moving on to Spain. This is the last instalment of a wider Bashmet project this season in these three cities which has also seen him as conductor and soloist with the Moscow Soloists, concerto soloist with the Mariinsky orchestra and chamber musician with Gidon Kremer and others. Kremer is soloist with the SONR in Schnittke’s Violin Concerto No. 4. Meanwhile the Academy is also on tour in Spain, giving three concerts with conductor Terje Mikkelsen in Orense, Vigo and Santander.
