Introduction

Hector Berlioz: Rooman karnevaali, alkusoitto
Sergei Prokofjev: Viulukonsertto nro 2
Antonin Dvořák: Sinfonia nro 7

Violinist Stefan Jackiw can do no wrong. At the age of just 14 he took the London music scene by storm, and he went on to do the same in all the other great musical capitals too. In recent years Jackiw has astounded audiences performing Prokofiev’s 2nd violin concerto at Carnegie Hall, the Konzerthaus in Berlin and other top venues. Despite all this success, his motto continues to be “There is no passion in life without struggle”. Prokofiev offers both.
