Grammy Award®-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich, an artist of “scarcely believable commitment” (New York Times), performs Britten’s Violin Concerto, a beautiful and conflicted work penned as WWII was beginning — and as Britten was first falling in love. Shostakovich’s charged ballet Age of Gold deals with themes of injustice and corruption and ends in the overthrow of capitalism itself — the MSO performs a suite of the ballet’s music in this 1930s-inspired program, which also includes Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler and a sweeping Oscar-nominated cinematic score by Hollywood’s Korngold.
