Hilary Hahn Plays Barber

Fri / Mar 18, 2022 - 11:00AM

One of the leading violinists of our time performs Samuel Barber’s post-Romantic concerto, and Paavo Järvi leads Dvořák’s magnificent Seventh.

About this Performance

The brilliant American violinist Hilary Hahn performs Barber’s lyric concerto—featured in an album Hahn made at only age 19 in a recording called by Gramophone “one of the finest ever.” A musician’s musician, conductor Paavo Järvi leads with Arvo Pärt’s mysterious, pizzicato- and percussion-heavy tribute to Gustave Eiffel. To conclude, it’s one of Antonín Dvořák’s greatest symphonies, the dramatic Seventh. Inspired by his mentor Brahms, Dvořák fills it to overflowing with powerful, stirring, and unforgettable themes.

This performance is generously supported in part by the Kohl Virtuoso Violin Fund.
