MENDELSSOHN Concerto for Violin and Piano in D minor
SCHUBERT Symphony No. 9 in C major, D. 944 "The Great"
A mere fourteen years old when he composed it, Mendelssohn’s Double Concerto in D minor is one of his most brilliant early works. Guest conductor Kevin John Edusei directs Colorado Symphony Concertmaster Yumi Hwang-Williams and guest pianist Anne Marie McDermott in a stunning combination of unlikely forces as violin and piano dance, mimic, converse, and repeat in an electrifying performance. Schubert’s majestic Symphony No. 9, known as “The Great,” is a powerfully melodic work brimming with influence from Beethoven’s own 9th Symphony. Breathtaking and full of life, this music is a joy to behold.
