Following their concert in tribute to the Oxford Vaccine Teams, which included the world premiere of John Rutter’s Joseph’s Carol, the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra is kicking off 2021 with an online series of four concerts, streamed free to its audiences worldwide.
Co-Concert master and violist Yuri Zhislin directs the Orchestra in the world premiere of Suite for Strings by Libby Croad. Zhislin also performs his own viola transcription of Glazunov’s Saxophone Concerto, and the programme closes with Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings.
