About this Performance

With moments of melancholy longing and shimmering brilliance, Sibelius’ concerto has become a beloved work for violin for offering its soloist a chance to show not only their technical skill but their expressiveness as well. Three-time Grammy Award winner Hilary Hahn is highly regarded for her ability to “wring maximum dramatic impact from every opportunity” from Sibelius’ landmark and “dig deeply into its inner meanings” (The Chicago Tribune). Alpesh Chauhan, Music Director of the Birmingham Opera Company, brings his own acclaimed sense of drama to Tchaikovsky’s timeless melodies and romance in selections from Swan Lake.

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