Brahms’ Violin Concerto

Saturday, November 12 at 8pm

Gideon Klein: Partita for Strings
Brahms: Violin Concerto
Dvorak: Symphony No. 8

Joshua Weilerstein, conductor
Stefan Jackiw, violin

Brahms’ demanding Violin Concerto is a kaleidoscope of drama, beauty and thrills in the hands of returning violinist Stefan Jackiw. Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8, too often overshadowed by his great New World Symphony, offers a bucolic refuge of joy and harmony. Rounding out the program is Partita for Strings by Gideon Klein, whose creative voice rose from the darkness of the Theresienstadt concentration camp during World War II. Only his manuscripts survived; he died in the Furstengrube labor camp at age 25. Joshua Weilerstein conducts.
