Musica Viva celebrates its 70th birthday with a gala recital tour by superstar violinist Maxim Vengerov.

Join us for the most highly anticipated musical event of the year as this fabled performer marks his international comeback with an Australian visit.

Hailed as the successor to the mighty Russian school of playing, Maxim Vengerov presents a program in the great tradition of violin recitals, contrasting works of the highest artistic and emotional demands with more light-hearted displays of almost superhuman technique.

Be part of this historic occasion and celebrate the unique joy of chamber music in an unforgettable evening with a legend of our time.
