About This Performance
Górecki’s Third Symphony mesmerized the musical world, selling more than a million CDs. His Fourth Symphony, left unfinished at the composer's death, now receives its American premiere in a completion by Mikolaj Górecki, based on his father's instructions.
Come for: Górecki’s Fourth Symphony, which pays homage to Górecki’s Polish colleague Alexandre Tansman, whose own tribute to Stravinsky opens the program.
And more: Sibelius' mercilessly beautiful Violin Concerto, performed by the Danish-Israeli master Nikolaj Znaider.
