Brahms’ lyrical Violin Concerto blends seamlessly with Bartók’s popular final orchestral work.

About this Performance

Grammy Award-winning violinist Nicola Benedetti, whose playing “combines soaring lyrical sweetness with muscular confidence” (The Guardian), breathes new life into Brahms’ Violin Concerto. Alternating between serene moods and a rousing display of fun, the famed concerto embodies the Viennese spirit while putting Brahms’ playful side on full display. Karina Canellakis leads Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, universally praised for its rich themes and thematic dominance.

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