George Gershwin salsas the night away under a Cuban sky, while on the backstreets of New York, teenage gangs clash to the sound of electrifying dance rhythms. Whatever the weather in Cardiff, the temperature at St David’s Hall will be rising in this sizzling, swinging programme from the RWCMD Symphony Orchestra – with rising star Sam Hau as soloist in Szymanowski’s rapturous dream of a violin concerto.
