Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
This concert by the New York String Orchestra bids a romantic farewell to the old year with Tchaikovsky’s melodic Serenade in C Major for Strings, Beethoven’s beloved “Pastoral” Symphony, and Barber’s romantic Violin Concerto with Augustin Hadelich, who “performs like a musician who takes nothing for granted, communicating an expressive, joyful spontaneity” (The New York Times).
