8:00 pm Verizon Hall
This season offers an exceptional opportunity to hear all four of Brahms’s great symphonies, led by four different conductors. We begin with the powerful Symphony No. 1, the composer’s answer to Beethoven and the culmination of 15 years’ work. Parisian Alain Altinoglu, who earned raves for his “superb performances” (The Philadelphia Inquirer) at his 2014 debut, conducts. Veronika Eberle is our soloist in Mendelssohn’s luminous Violin Concerto, which never fails to captivate—and neither does Eberle, an astounding violinist just 27 years old. Yannick calls Henri Dutilleux “one of the finest French composers of the 20th century.” Métaboles is a prime example of his artistry. This program is an irresistible combination of 19th-century favorites and a 20th-century standout.
