MOZART Symphony No. 33
BRAHMS Violin Concerto

Opening the program is Wolfgang Mozart’s charming Symphony No. 33, followed by Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s orchestrally imaginative Archora, inspired by the “primordial energy” of her homeland, Iceland. Closing the program, international star Hilary Hahn is soloist in one of the greatest works in the repertoire: Brahms’s Violin Concerto. Brahms composed this rich, lyrical work in 1878 for, and with the advice of, his friend Joseph Joachim, a towering virtuoso of the age.

Thursday evening's performance by Hilary Hahn is supported by the Roberta M. Strang Memorial Fund.

Thursday evening’s concert is in memory of Eric N. Birch, supported by Sandra O. Moose.
