This week, Karen Gomyo travels to Dubai to open the second edition of the city’s Proms festival with her debut performance with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. She will perform Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with conductor Ben Gernon.
The concerto is fresh in Karen’s fingers from her recent return to Dallas Symphony Orchestra, where her performance with Carlos Kalmar received much praise from the local press:
”…she played with such passion, with such dazzlingly flawless technique and with such tonal depth…”

Remaining highlights of the season include both a return to St Louis Symphony and her debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra with Jakub Hrůša, as well as debuts with Royal Northern Sinfonia with Karina Canellakis, and Dresdener Philharmoniker with Roderick Cox.
The First Night of the Dubai Proms takes place on Tuesday 19 March at Dubai Opera. More info available here.
