2019-05-02_19-30 _ Tchaikovsky and Elgar

Tchaikovsky and Elgar

7:30 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.

2019-05-09_19-30 _ Mahler Symphony No. 9

Mahler Symphony No. 9

7:30 PM, Verizon Hall
Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Mahler - Symphony No. 9 in D major

Yannick continues his deeply felt exploration of Gustav Mahler's symphonies with the Ninth, the last of the great symphonies he was able to complete before his death in 1911. Critics, musicians, and music lovers have struggled to convey the enormous scope of this piece; the great conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Herbert von Karajan described the Ninth as “music coming from another world … from eternity.” Musically ingenious and emotionally intense—Is it about the wonder of life?
