Hadelich Performs Sibelius

    Concert Details

    “Fate, that fatal force” is the driving theme of Tchaikovsky’s astounding Fourth Symphony, whose emotional finale builds from darkness to light. “If you cannot discover reasons for happiness in yourself,” the composer wrote, “look at others... Look what a good time they have simply surrendering themselves to joy.” Augustin Hadelich, a musician of “scarcely believable commitment” (New York Times), returns to perform Sibelius’s wildly challenging Violin Concerto; Music Director Ken-David Masur conducts.
