ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Andrés and Denis Kozhukhin reunite for a program featuring three works inspired by the same haunting melody: the theme from Paganini’s demonically difficult Caprice No. 24 for Solo Violin. A symbol of virtuoso technique, this melody inspired both Rachmaninoff’s and Lutoslawski’s showpieces for piano and orchestra as well as Blacher’s purely orchestral fireworks. Andrés continues his multi-season exploration of Ives’ quintessentially American music with his Symphony No. 3, The Camp Meeting.

Pre-Concert Activities: Attend the Prelude pre-concert discussion, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical concert. Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists or orchestra members.
