Part of SA1 Saturday Evening 1
About This Performance
A Hollywood master borrowed from his movies to create a lush, lyrical concerto and dedicated it to Alma Mahler, widow of his childhood mentor, Gustav, who had written the beautiful Adagietto from his Fifth for his beloved Alma.
Renaud Capuçon follows in a noble Philharmonic tradition: Jascha Heifetz, who gave the premiere, made a still celebrated recording of the Korngold Concerto with the LA Phil.
Daniel Harding is the Principal Conductor of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, with which he has recorded Mahler’s Fourth Symphony and songs. His discography also includes Mahler’s Symphony No. 10, and he accompanies some of the hottest young violinists – Janine Jansen. Nicola Benedetti, and Ray Chen – in concertos on disc.
Renaud Capuçon will be signing CDs after the Friday and Saturday performances.
