In his Australian debut, this brilliant and colourful American violinist will perform three of the most stunning romantic pieces – played on gut strings for the first time in Australia.

Shunske is one of the most acclaimed and versatile musicians of his generation. Debuting as a soloist at the age of 12, Shunske studied at the Julliard School, New York and the Curtis Institute, Philadelphia.

When Mendelssohn was 12, he composed his second string symphony, but already his work was bold, bright and full of eloquence. The Brandenburg performs Greig’s Holberg Suite – written in tribute to the baroque poet Holberg – with a reverence and strong period mindfulness. You will love the warm and rich tones of the Brandenburg strings played on their period instruments.

And then Paganini’s dangerously virtuosic Concerto for Violin No. 4 – what a finale!
