ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Hear Sibelius’ passionate Violin Concerto when the brilliant young violinist Augustin Hadelich returns to Jones Hall. From its snowy opening to its final “polonaise for polar bears,” this masterpiece is a true tour-de-force of violin playing. Andrés leads an exciting performance of Brahms’ Symphony No. 3. A showcase for the orchestra, this epic score features a hauntingly beautiful horn solo and ends with a twist.
