ASSO's Artist-in-Residence for 2019–20 celebrated violinist Maxim Vengerov joins the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra in a programme reflecting on the strength of human spirit.

Grammy award-winning Maxim Vengerov and the ASSO will present masterful account of the famous piece for violin filled with the atmosphere of bright solemnity, which is not disturbed by the dramatic images intruding from time to time into the movement of music: Johannes Brahms - Violin Concerto in D major, Op.77, and then, creating a refreshing balance between classical music and new works, the Armenian Orchestra and the renowned soloist Maxim Vengerov will present a heartfelt work by the American-Maltese composer Alexey Shor, Composer-in-Residence for ASSO’s 2019/2020 season – “Barcarolle St Elmo for Violin and Orchestra”  - continuing the exploration of human emotions.

The ASSO also present the European premiere of Armenian composer John Ter-Tadevosyan Symphony No 2 "The Fate of Man", in which the composer acknowledges that through the ups and downs of life there is the uniquely human ability to roll with the punches, fight in the face of adversity and strive for better.

The concert is in the framework of the European tour organized by the European Foundation for Support of Culture and ASSO.
