Hadelich Plays Paganini

Friday, January 24 — Sunday, January 26 2020

Friday, January 24 — Sunday, January 26 2020
Orchestra Hall
2 hours

Augustin Hadelich, “one of the outstanding violinists of his generation” (New York Times), returns to Orchestra Hall to perform Paganini’s First Violin Concerto. Paganini, himself a wizard of the violin, began composing when he could not find material challenging enough to play; his First Violin Concerto balances showmanship with substance.

Paganini admired fellow composer Berlioz (and the feeling was mutual, with Berlioz calling Paganini “a Titan among giants”); in the second half we join Berlioz on the psychedelic trip that is his Symphonie fantastique. This symphonic hallucination evokes dark revels, unrequited love, an execution, and a visit to the underworld.

When Hadelich first came on the scene ... It was as if a Golden Age violinist had jumped out of the grooves of a 78-r.p.m. record. ”
