Classic FM Drive with John Brunning 4pm - 7pm
She's one of the foremost violinists of her generation, and Lisa Batiashvili is making her Bristol Proms debut at the Old Vic theatre.
It's time to get up close and personal with Bach. Lisa Batiashvili's new album highlights the great composer's violin works, but never before will concert-goers have seen his music in this much detail.
Stradivarius-owner Batiashvili has been at the cutting edge of her profession for nearly 20 years, winning competition after competition and touring the world. She's also the New York Philharmonic's Artist In Residence for their 2014 and 2015 season, so to have her nip across to Bristol for this concert is a coup indeed.
This one is sure to sell quickly, so make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible, to catch a rare glimpse of this amazing talent.
