please note that Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 1, initially announced in the programme, will not be performed. Unfortunately, the soloist Leonidas Kavakos cannot participate in the concert. According to Leonidas Kavakos’s managers, he recently suffered a grievous loss in his family, further aggravated by the loss of a close friend. He regrets to cancel all his concerts in June.
