Beethoven Violin Concerto

Masterworks Series >

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto reminds us all: Every moment is precious. This flawless creation turns each simple gesture — even just one repeated note — into a profound event. Violinist Augustin Hadelich, a musician as heroic as he is sensitive, dispatches Beethoven’s immortal concerto with his “silvery tone, pinpoint intonation and surprising turns of phrase” (Los Angeles Times). In Gigues, images of carefree folk dancing are refracted through the dreamy glow of Debussy.

Morlot Conducts Ravel

Masterworks Series >

From the rapturous sunrise in Daphnis et Chloé to the sultry jazz tones in the Concerto in G, Ravel’s orchestral scores saturate the stage with extravagant colors. For these ornate French creations, the delight is in the details, and the details are never more vibrant than when Ludovic Morlot works within the perfect acoustics of Benaroya Hall. He joins forces with pianist Steven Osborne, “whose approach to Ravel combines clarity with heart” (The Guardian). Debussy’s Printemps offers an early glimpse of this imaginative composer. Marc-André Dalbavie, one of today’s leading contributors to that exquisite French tradition, honors his forebear Messiaen in La source d’un regard.

Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1

Masterworks Series >

Resilience. Determination. Exultation. Schumann’s Second Symphony reminds us how humans, flaws and all, can overcome challenges with guts and grace. The pain and humiliation of a hand injury that ended his piano career led Schumann onto a symphonic path blazed by Beethoven, as heard in the fiery “Zwickauer” Symphony. The willful streak that carried Beethoven through so much personal hardship was already well developed in the First Piano Concerto, his proud and unbending bid to fill the mighty large shoes of Mozart.

Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 2

Masterworks Series >

The bravest artists are willing to stretch and scrabble toward truth and greatness. Brahms, in his First Symphony, crafts an ode to personal freedom, lifting his heavy burden of history and self-doubt. Bartók peers unflinchingly at the seedy underbelly of life in The Miraculous Mandarin, his outrageously colorful story of seduction and treachery. Russian-born violinist Alina Ibragimova brings total commitment to the music she plays. “The more I know about life,” she declared, “the more I feel, the more I can express.” She directs that awareness toward the clean, austere beauty of Shostakovich’s Second Violin Concerto.
