About This Performance
When Dvořák’s Ninth was premiered at Carnegie Hall, there was wild cheering after each movement. To this day, it remains one of the most popular symphonies in the repertoire. With its memorable melodies, vigorous rhythms, and perfectly balanced moments of drama and repose, it’s easy to hear why.
New worlds: the revolutionary Romanticism of Beethoven’s Egmont; America gets its own nationalism – from a Czech; Schoenberg wrote his Violin Concerto here in Los Angeles, after moving to the U.S. to escape the Nazis.
One of the violin’s most thoughtful masters explores the paradoxes of Schoenberg’s neoclassical serialism in a concerto where the required virtuosity is as much mental as it is manual.
