Stéphane Denève - Conductor
Vadim Repin - Violin

Prokofiev - Violin Concerto No. 1
INTERMISSION -
Strauss - Death and Transfiguration
Ravel - La Valse

We were delighted to learn that our Artist-in-Residence Hilary Hahn is expecting her second child in spring 2018. As Hilary welcomes her new addition to the family, she must withdraw from this performance of Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1. We wish Hilary and her family the best during this exciting time.

We are deeply grateful that renowned violinist Vadim Repin has agreed to perform in place of Hilary Hahn. The program will take place as scheduled. 

Also on the program, Maestro Denève offers another Philadelphia premiere from Guillaume Connesson, his Flammenschrift (Flaming Letters), a tribute to German music. Equally worthy of tribute: Richard Strauss's spiritual Death and Transfigurationand Ravel's whirling La Valse, described by the composer as “dancing on the edge of a volcano.”
