Orchestra Hall
2 hours

Brahms’s joyous Violin Concerto is the best of both worlds: the style and seriousness of Brahms and the dazzling technical fireworks that have earned it a reputation as being against the violin rather than for it. Meanwhile, Lutosławski’s Concerto for Orchestra is the composer’s crowning achievement in his exploration of Polish melodies.

James Ehnes does not just play the violin. James Ehnes transposes all of the elegance and delicacy of the human voice onto the violin. ”
