About Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto and Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony with Oxford Sinfonia
The Oxford Sinfonia is very excited to welcome Jennifer Pike to the Sheldonian to perform Khachaturian’s violin concerto.
Conducted by Robert Weaver, the concert will open with Khachaturian’s stirring Adagio from the ballet Spartacus and, after the interval, conclude with Tchaikovsky’s ever-popular 5th Symphony.
No stranger to the Sheldonian, Jennifer is renowned for her “dazzling interpretative flair and exemplary technique” (Classic FM) and is in demand as a soloist and recitalist all over the world.
She is known as an artist of exceptional integrity and depth, whilst her ability to “hold an audience spellbound” (The Strad) and “luminous beauty of tone” (The Observer) have established her as one of the most exciting artists performing today.
Jennifer first gained international recognition in 2002, when, aged 12, she became the youngest-ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year and the youngest major prize winner in the Menuhin International Violin Competition.
Since then, she has been a regular at the BBC Proms and Wigmore Hall and with major orchestras worldwide. Jennifer was awarded an MBE for services to Classical Music in the 2020 Queen’s Birthday Honours.
