ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Let’s simply say, she does everything right – just right” (Abendzeitung). Don’t miss your chance to experience the dazzling virtuosity of one of the greatest violinists the world has ever seen as Hilary Hahn salutes Bernstein’s incredible legacy. A power-packed concert weekend ends with Shostakovich’s monumental, thunderous Fifth.
