Sunday, May 5, 2013
Hilary Hahn returns to Philadelphia for Korngold's Violin Concerto. This colorful and cinematic score stemmed from his success in Hollywood writing many treasured film soundtracks. Trademark fanfares, folk melodies, and thunderous crescendos punctuate Mahler's first symphony, along with humorous folk tunes and inventive orchestrations. Plus a chance to hear a rarely-heard and vibrant work by another 20th century master, Strauss's Love Scene from his opera Feuersnot.
