Featuring: Benjamin Beilman
What better way to celebrate spring’s arrival than with the energizing flutter of Barber’s Violin Concerto performed by an emerging star on the international stage, Benjamin Beilman.
Not to be outdone, the two-piece concert concludes with Mahler’s dramatic and absolutely thrilling Symphony No. 1. It depicts a life journey, from the innocence of youth, through peaks of tremendous joy as well as despair at the confrontation of loss. Finally the work triumphs in a hard-won victory over adversity.
