I attended the first of this series at the Royal Festival Hall on 19th march. Program Finlandia, Violin Concerto (Vadim Repin) and Lemminkainen Suite.

Finlandia ok , Vadim violin Concerto good but not the very best I have heard.. Similary with Lemminainen. I may have been mis reading the body language but during the acceptance of the applause Askenazy appeared to castigate the Philharmonia's leader ( they use the term concert master) and he seemed less happy than he normally is having conducted a piece. So maybe Askenazy himself not totally happy with the Orchestra's performance.

But overall still an enjoyable concert to attend and so good to hear Lemminkainen.

Despite two cycles, Ashkenazy never recorded Lemminkainen Suite.
