Tchaikovsky and Elgar

8:00 PM, Verizon Hall
Stéphane Denève - Conductor
Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider - Violin
Elgar - Violin Concerto
INTERMISSION -
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 5

With a premiere performance by Fritz Kreisler, and a premiere recording by a teenaged Yehudi Menuhin, Elgar's Violin Concerto was no doubt destined to become a staple of the violin repertoire. Our soloist, Nikolaj Znaider, is internationally renowned as a violinist. And he has a special connection to the Elgar Concerto: He plays Kreisler's Guarneri violin! Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 is among his most popular works, with its stirring evocation of “fate,” from somber to triumphant.
