Bartók Violin Concerto No. 2 with Augustin Hadelich

Mar 26, 2021 - Mar 28, 2021


Throughout his career, Brahms often felt the weight of Beethoven's omnipresent shadow looming over him, but with the long-awaited completion of his First Symphony, he emphatically vanquished his symphonic demons with a work that simultaneously contains echoes of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and stands alone as a truly magnificent symphonic work. Berlioz's Overture to Béatrice et Bénédict provides a spirited opener to the proceedings before conductor Peter Oundjian is joined by GRAMMY® Award-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich in his much awaited return to Boettcher Concert Hall performing Bartók's vigorous and demanding Second Violin Concerto – a fitting flourish to an evening of explosive and energizing masterworks.
