Delight in Beethoven’s only violin concerto, a vivacious and melodic treasure that Music Director Peter Oundjian calls “the pinnacle of all violin concertos.” This masterpiece requires as skilled a musician as the Grammy-winning Augustin Hadelich, an artist of “scarcely believable commitment” (New York Times); this concert is Hadelich’s second program as the Festival’s 2021 artist-in-residence. Bartók once said of his fellow composer that “all Kodály’s composing activity is rooted only in Hungarian soil” — hear a fine example of Kodály’s flair for folk in his Dances of Galánta. Weber’s overture to his opera Oberon adds drama to this program from its very first horn solo.
This performance will be delivered both in person and virtually. Each in-person ticket purchase also grants access to the virtual performance. If you would prefer to attend the virtual concert only, see the full list of virtual concerts or purchase a Virtual Concerts package here.
