Event Description

In a letter to his friend about his Violin Concerto, Edward Elgar wrote, “I have the Concerto well in hand… and it’s good! Awfully emotional! Too emotional but I love it.” Violinist Christian Tetzlaff deftly navigates the concerto’s journey through moments of wild energy tempered by noble melodies of the utmost refinement. Conductor Simone Young balances Elgar’s timeless concerto with Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s gorgeously triumphant Fifth Symphony, one of the composer’s most beloved works
