Brahms’s Violin Concerto demands both virtuosic fireworks and profound romantic expression. Anne-Sophie Mutter who The Times of London calls “The undisputed queen of violin playing” performs February 26-28. Her protégé, Ye-Eun Choi, recipient of the 2013 European Culture Award for New Artists, takes the stage March 1. Michael Tilson Thomas pairs Brahms’s concerto with Schumann’s First Symphony and J.L. Adams’s celestial The Light that Fills the World.
