Let your imagination run wild with picturesque music about enchanted lakes, mythical rivers and the voyages of Sinbad, as a wily queen saves her life by telling her new husband stories in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto is heroic in its own right, basking in luscious melodies and vulnerable, heartfelt sentiments. Both pieces are twinned in this all-Russian program featuring Grammy-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich.
CONGRATULATIONS AUGUSTIN HADELICH!!
